Dutch Research Council NWO awards Tine De Moor VICI Grant 

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded Tine De Moor of our research team an additional VICI grant for the research proposal 'UNICA. Building a UNified theory for the development and resilience of Institutions for Collective Action for Europe in the past millennium'. After a rebuttal procedure, the NWO board has awarded the grant to this research project, to be carried out by Tine De Moor and her research team Institutions for Collective Action. This project will study the development of citizens' collectivities over the past millennium in order to discover common organizational models and factors that promote sustainability and resilience of such institutions.
