Throughout the Netherlands, land owners (or their lessees) use adjacent public or private land without any right. There is, however, no scientific empirical data on how often and where land is illegally used. On the basis of empirical case studies, this research has the following aims: make an estimate of how often illegal land use occurs in the Netherlands; which kind of land is illegally used; in what kind of spatial context it is illegally used; and for what purpose it is illegally used.

All knowledge begins as uncommon—unrecognized, undervalued, and sometimes unaccepted. But with the right perspective, the uncommon can become the exceptional.
The University of Groningen has a rich academic tradition dating back to 1614. From this tradition arose the first female student and the first female lecturer in the Netherlands, the first Dutch astronaut and the first president of the European Central Bank. Geographically, the University is rooted in the Northern part of the Netherlands, a region very close to its heart.
