Citizens today demand maximum individual freedom but they are decreasingly tolerant of the risks associated with it. Governments are expected to provide both, individual freedom and risk control. Those aims, however, are incompatible. In the Netherlands, the political culture is increasingly focusing on the aim of risk prevention. Everybody now understands the term ‘what works’.
