The research is intended to compile an inventory of existing knowledge and to evolve new hypotheses. These hypotheses can be tested empirically in a possible subsequent study. On the basis of the research objective the following specific problem can be inferred: "Do the inhabitants of the Netherlands perceive images based on the concept "democratic constitutional state", and if so, what is the background to these images and to what extent do they deviate from the way in which the concept is used by academics and professionals?" In this study we are interested in the opinions of academic experts, but also in those of experts in a broader sense, e.g. politicians, administrators and lawyers, referred to here as 'professionals'.
