Criminal justice policy in the Netherlands has traditionally been characterised by a great deal of stability but recent crises have fuelled a public mood of discontent and disarray. The most notable event in this regard has no doubt been the assassination of populist politician Pim Fortuyn in May 2002. This article discusses some of these crises, the governmental response to them, and examines how criminal justice is evolving under an emerging Dutch-style Garlandian social discourse of crime and security.
