    Abstract

    In recent decades, Dutch society, just like the rest of Western Europe, has been confronted with globalization, Europeanisation, economic restructuring, rapid technological innovation, first steps on the way towards the so-called knowledge society or knowledge economy, ongoing processes of individualization and societal pluriformity. These developments and changes pose major challenges to government.
