Ethical assessment

Amsterdam Law and Behavior projects are assessed by the Ethics Committee CERCO of the Faculty of Law, VU University. This committee checks whether research conforms to general ethical guidelines for social research, with special attention to – because of the sensitive research topic ‘crime’ – the careful management of privacy-protected data and privacy protection of those (formerly) in contact with the (criminal) justice system.
