Think tank


The 'Debt and Debt Collection’ think tank focuses on (further) improving cooperation between the parties involved in the fields of debt and debt collection. It does this by encouraging the mutual exchange of knowledge and experiences between bailiffs, social workers and debt counsellors. By working with teachers, we ensure that the insights generated will find a place in the curriculum, improving the programmes in Social Legal Services, Social Work and Services, HBO Law and Bailiff training.

Bailiff students, students of Social Work and Services and Social Legal Services

The think tank is a network of bailiffs, social workers and debt counsellors, all of whom are involved in enhancing mutual cooperation between these groups. Teachers from the programmes mentioned above are also involved. The Professional Practice of Law research group, programme line in debts and debt collection, also plays a facilitating role.

The driving forces behind the think tank are currently Lilith Brouwer (, Ineke van den Berg (, Julia den Hartogh ( and Marc Anderson (


The activities of the think tank will depend on the requirements that come to light. There will in any case be a series of meetings held on the subject of mutual cooperation between the various professional groups.

This website will soon provide details of the think tank’s meetings and other relevant news. The website also provides information on the members involved. This gives members the opportunity to find those whom they can share information with.
