I have two main research interests within the broader Organizational / Entrepreneurship Studies field:
1) the study of small business organisations / entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia; particularly those of ethnic Chinese owner-managers addressing leadership, ethnicity, religion and identity
2) the study of security; maritime security in Indonesia, and organizing for security in South Africa, the UK and the Netherlands.
I conduct extensive qualitative research with at times creative and arts-based methodologies. I also publish on qualitative research methodologies.
NWO SSH Open Competition M round 2022: Cross-border Interorganizational Cooperation in Crime Control
Math Noortmann (ITEM/ LAW) & Juliette Koning (OSE/SBE)
Cross-border crime is a structural problem for many European border regions. Combatting for example drug-crimes and human trafficking that occurs across borders requires far-reaching Euregional cooperation between police forces, public prosecution services, and municipalities. The project investigates the complexity of cooperation between these public organizations in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine (EMR). Academics from law, political science, and organization studies and professionals from the distinctive public organizations work closely together. This research provides new evidence-based knowledge that will inform the scientific debates, policies, and practices of interorganizational cooperation in cross-border crime control.
