Justitiële verkenningen, 2019, nr. 1 - Court around the corner

But even after the revision of the judicial map in 2013, which closed a substantial part of the court locations, the costs kept only increasing. In the meantime a genuine counter-movement seems to have emerged. It focuses on effective services, wants to leave the (ivory) office towers and be present in the neighborhoods.
