Whereas the nature of complex challenges and societal issues, such as climate change, population aging, congested transportation networks, and social inequality, are increasingly transboundary, effective and legitimate solutions to such problems, in the Netherlands and elsewhere, appear to be more and more found at the local and, in particular, at the regional level.

Since 1 July 2015, the Tilburg Center for Regional Law and Governance (TiREG), led by Prof. dr. Martijn Groenleer, focuses on exploring, explaining and evaluating the novel interactions between government, businesses, citizens and knowledge institutions that develop in response to these complex challenges and societal issues.

TiREG is a joint venture of the Departments of Public Law and Politics & Public Administration and is supported by the Province of Noord-Brabant. Besides legal and public administration scholars, the Center brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines and institutes (also beyond Tilburg University) to conduct research and develop education in the field of regional law and governance.

    Publication: Public organisations 'Learn from each other'
    (Dutch only) Als publieke organisatie is blijven leren belangrijk om democratisch bestuur te waarborgen en opgaven in de samenleving effectief te kunnen blijven aanpakken. Om sneller en meer van elkaar te leren hebben drie gemeenten, een ambtelijke fusieorganisatie en één Gemeenschappelijke Regeling een gezamenlijk leerproces ontwikkeld en uitgevoerd. Leon van den Dool, PwC en voormalig TiREG/Tilburg University, begeleidde het proces; Martijn Groenleer, directeur TiREG, leverde een bijdrage. Het leerproces resulteerde in de publicatie ‘Leren van elkaar’ waarin lessen worden samengevat in drie thema’s: leren om te leren, organisatieontwikkeling in de netwerksamenleving, en regionale samenwerking en slagkracht. De publicatie is een uitgave van de Vereniging van Gemeentesecretarissen en is te downloaden via de website van de VGS. Read more
