Bailiff 2.0: helpful motivator

08 October 2014

A new way of collecting debts where bailiffs take debtors’ motives into account could lead to much better results than old-fashioned threatening based on legal texts. A helpful bailiff reduces the numbers of people defaulting on debts and increases the numbers of bills being paid, according to research by Martijn Keizer.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
