Why is the scaffolding on the Palace of Justice still up?

Brussels Explained with Lisa Bradshaw

If you have lived in Belgium for less than about 35 years, then you have no idea what the Palace of Justice looks like without its ubiquitous scaffolding, which has become a normal part of the Brussels skyline. Why is the courthouse behind bars – and when will they disappear?

Lisa Bradshaw will give an explainer, followed by a conversation with Selma Franssen and questions from the audience. 


Brussels Explained


deBuren, Curieus and The Bulletin joined hands with journalist Selma Franssen to organize an English edition of ´Moeilijke Dingen Makkelijk Uitgelegd´ with a focus on Brussels. And in these times of social distancing we can fortunately also circulate knowledge online. Every Wednesday in September and November we invite an expert to give a presentation on a complex topic, followed by questions from the audience moderated by Selma Franssen on Facebook Live. Each explainer will also be published as a podcast on the website in the week following each live session, for those who do not wish to use Facebook.


Do you have a question for one of these experts? Pose your question via Facebook chat during the live session, or in advance via
