Leven als zoekpartij. Intergenerationele zingeving en spiritualiteit
Meer dan vroeger zijn mensen vrij om betekenis te geven aan hun leven, om zelf waarden te kiezen die voor hen belangrijk zijn. Welke gevolgen heeft dat voor het gesprek over zingeving en spiritualiteit met de volgende generatie? Eén van de mogelijke methoden om een getuigenis te delen is die van de ‘spirituele autobiografie’.
In dit boek krijgt deze methode een intergenerationele toepassing aan de hand van een briefwisseling tussen de redacteur en zijn dochters, aangevuld met een begeleidend gesprek. Daarna laten diverse collega’s uit het professionele en wetenschappelijke veld hun – persoonlijk – licht erop schijnen.

The power of language has been used as an aid in the search for insight, so that a structure has been created for people who deal with this matter professionally (including education).

As a result of society’s increasing digitisation, the police have ever more opportunities to collect, investigate and combine huge amounts of personal data using advanced technology. However, the current legal framework is, as yet, ill-equipped to deal with this new reality. Commissioned by the WODC, this study examines the legal safeguards in criminal justice data collection in relation to the legal safeguards governing the processing of these data. To this end, the requirements and safeguards imposed by European law on the processing of data for law enforcement purposes are inventoried here. Inspiration is drawn from experience with the Dutch Intelligence and Security Services Act 2017 and Belgian, German and Norwegian law. This study provides tools that legislators can use to reconsider the methods of standardisation and legal regulation design to better protect citizens' privacy.
