|About the Project|
Tilburg University, founded in 1927, is located in the southern Netherlands and specialises in the social sciences and the humanities. The university highly values authenticity, academic freedom, and continuous development. In its top-quality education and research programmes in the disciplines of the social sciences and the humanities, the university is committed to addressing issues in society at national and international levels. It does so by training people for positions of responsibility in society and by contributing to socially sustainable solutions.
The Faculty of Law at Tilburg University was established in 1963: approximately 2,700 students are currently enrolled in its law programmes. Main carrier of the work for the HUMSEC project is the Department of Criminal Law. The main focus of the department is on victimology, organised crime, economic crime, money laundering and financial investigation. The researchers who will participate in the HUMSEC project are currently involved in multiple projects, such as the research project "Assessing Organised Crime", financed by the European Commission under the Framework Program 6 and the annual Cross-border Crime Colloquium.
