Open government? : the parlimentary enquiry hall in The Hague

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


As part of an extension of the Dutch Lower House, a room to hold parliamentary enquiries has sprung up in The Hague, designed by Erik Knippers (Architectenforum). Unlike the other two parts of the project, the renovation of the Logement van Amsterdam and of the former Public Record Office, the work on the enquiry office centred on open government, an essential concept in the corridors of contemporary Dutch political power. Jacob Voorthuis looks at how politics is represented and made transparent.
