Behavioural Approaches to Contract and Tort (BACT)

By thinking, deciding, and acting, we display behaviour, and in private law, this behaviour is relevant in more than one respect. At times, legislatures have preconceived ideas about behaviour and how private parties will respond to legislative intervention.

More information about our BACT Programme.

Fiscal Autonomy and its boundaries (FAB)

Globalization and increased mobility have the effect that countries are less free, less autonomous than before when designing their tax system. The central question of this research programme is: Which external influences are there right now, have been in the past or might become relevant in the future on current tax law? And to which consequences has this led or will lead?

More information about our FAB Programme is available in Dutch only.
