Many citizens are losing their trust in the government. The Dutch Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR), however, states in the advisory report 'Vertrouwen in burgers' (In citizens we trust) that citizens are willing to participate for the greater good of society. What can politics do in order to breach the gap between itself and the citizen? Can we compare the situation with Belgium and what can we learn from each other? Debate with, amongst others, Pieter Winsemius (WRR).
