EXPERTISE AND POLICY ADVICE
One of the most distinguishing features of the SCOOP research program is its interdisciplinary analytical approach to the study of changing historical and contemporary circumstances. Applying the integrated analytical framework requires domain expertise on cooperation at the level of families, communities, and organizations, and the changing societal level institutional arrangements in which they are embedded. It further requires theoretical and methodological expertise in modelling micro-level behavioural dynamics, moral dilemmas, and the success or failure of policies and interventions. SCOOP unites the leading scientists in all of these areas. It brings together leading Dutch scholars in Sociology, History, Psychology, and Philosophy. Together, they have built an innovative theoretical model to integrate their complementary expertise and developed an interdisciplinary joint research strategy. Using this approach, they will disentangle the mystery of cooperation and, their program will generate novel solutions for care, work, and inclusion and contribute to roadmaps for resilient societies.
Three Types of Policy Intervention
Scoop's ambition is to generate insights for evidence based policy advice and interventions. Three types of interventions can be distinguished.
