Neighbours who cause nuisance. What can we do about them if matters threaten to get out of hand and eviction seems the only solution? At the request of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice and the Centre for Criminality Prevention and Safety, Dr Michel Vols studied the problem, together with colleagues at the Centre for Public Order and Public Security of the University of Groningen. Thirty-four housing corporations are participating in the research, with 54 cases being closely studied. The research is one of the flagship projects related to Sustainable Society studies, one of the research areas of the University of Groningen.
