The Dutch parliamentary system dates back to 1848. It has hardly been changed since the launch of the general right to vote in 1918. The most important problem is the fact that the Dutch system doesn't [anymore] come up with a decisive parliament and that voters can hardly or only in very indirect way influence the government and its decisions. The events of last year and the fact that the parliament is not fully operational since October 16, 2002, illustrate this clearly. Isn't it time to adjust our democratic system for the 21st century? Wouldn't a system, which supports a decisive parliament and where citizens have a much more direct influence, be of interest to the country and the people?more....

Ageing is not a separate issue from social integration, gender advancement, economic stability or issues of poverty. It has developed a connection with many global agendas and will play, increasingly, a prominent role in the way society interacts with economic and social welfare institutions, family and community life and the roles of women. more....

The paper distinguishes between cities experiencing high rates of growth and those growing more slowly and argues that 1) widely-held North American assumptions to the contrary, slow growth is not a pathology; and 2) since we do tend to view it as a pathology, we fail to plan for it, and, instead follow policies more appropriate to rapidly-growing centres.more....

In the view of the Dutch government, separation of the positions of the council and the executive (referred to below as ‘dualisation’) is first of all a means of establishing a clear division of responsibilities between the organs of local government at municipal level and, second, a necessary condition for making local democracy more accessible to new forms of participation. The roles and positions of council and executive will be clear and more recognisable, thereby promoting public debate, facilitating public accountability and allowing active scrutiny to take place. more....

Around 2030 there will be more people and those people will get older. Old isn't the same as ill, frail or invalid. Senior citizens are all individuals who want to live independent as long as possible. Feeling safe is important for them and they want to make their own choices. 94% of the participants stated that seniors will be able to play a fully integrated role in society in 2050.more....

Duurzame mobiliteit - noodzakelijke én kansrijke opgave voor de toekomst van Nederland
De mobiliteit in Nederland nadert haar fysieke grenzen. Het dichtslibben van het wegennet, de problemen op het spoor en de slechte bereikbaarheid van(uit) de Randstad, maar ook de grote steden daarbuiten, spelen ons ernstig parten. De consequenties voor onze economische ontwikkeling en maatschappelijke ontplooiing zijn slechts bij benadering vast te stellen. Dit geldt versterkt voor de internationale positie van Nederland.

The most up-to-date WHO publication on the subject, the report may help 191 WHO Member States to ensure that genome technology is used to reduce rather than exacerbate global inequalities in health status. In the coming decades, information generated by genomics will have major benefits for the prevention, diagnosis and management of many diseases which have been difficult or impossible to control.

The accelerating pace of scientific and technological progress, which made it possible, within just a decade, to complete the first full sequencing of the human genome - and of a growing number of other living organisms - is heralding a new era in molecular biology and genetics, in particular for human medicine. However, it is going to take a very large-scale and long-term research effort if the promises of this 'post-genomic age' are to be realised. more....
