Crises and mini-crises: recurring dilemmas for administrators

  • Dr. Menno van Duin

The lecture series marks the start of a more intensive collaboration between both knowledge institutes in the field of research and education. The aim is to collaborate on education and research and to offer PhD positions and internships. For students of the Bachelor Security Studies and the Master Crisis & Security Management, this is a unique opportunity to learn more about the ins and outs of the Dutch landscape on crisis management. Policy officers and other interested employees from the Ministry of Justice and Security are also invited to attend. This will allow for an interesting mix of attending students and professionals. It is also the reason why the lectures will be held in Dutch. The lectures can also be attended individually.

Lecture 2: Crises and mini-crises: recurring dilemmas for administrators

Lector Crisis Management Dr. Menno van Duin will discuss his experiences in dealing with crises and mini-crises. He will focus on the recurring dilemmas and threads in a series of approximately 140 (mini) crises as seen from an administrative perspective. A modest case such as the collapse of the dug-out in Twijzel or the Zaanse vlogger can be equally instructive as a more well-known crisis such as the missing case of Anne Faber or the MH-17 crash. Which role should administrators take? Who is in charge? Which organisational or communications dilemmas keep popping up in the various (mini) crises?
