WRR launches three new projects
The Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) has added three projects to its work programme. First, ‘The Expert Government’ project is focused on examining what in-house knowledge, skills and competences the government needs to possess or regain, in order to able to play a more substantive and guiding role in addressing complex societal issues. Second, in its project ‘The Netherlands in an Ageing World’ the Council studies the implications of ageing worldwide for the structure of the Dutch economy, labour market, macro policy and pensions. A third new project is ‘Tilting World Order: Government and Decision Making under Multipolarity and Multidimensional Power Politics’. The Council aims to contribute to a broadening of policy perspectives on the emergence of a new global power equilibrium and changes in the multilateral order.
