The antecedents of risky, antisocial and criminal behaviour: within this theme the focus lies on questions such as why do people display risky, antisocial and criminal behavior (e.g. cybercrime) and how we can effectively intervene when such behavior has been displayed. The influence of the environment plays a central role here. This includes the physical environment, such as security measures (CCTV), but also the social environment (peers, co-workers, cultures).

This research is applied focussed, which is evident from the ongoing collaboration with partners, such as the National Crisis Centre, law enforcement agencies, WODC and the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority.
