PrinsjesLezing is coming back this year with the National Ombudsman, Reinier van Zutphen! Mr. van Zutphen will give an in-depth lecture on the theme 'Your freedom, my freedom, in conversation about borders'. Don't miss this unique experience and register here.

We often start talking about the meaning of freedom only when people experience a loss of freedom. For more and more citizens in the Netherlands this is now the case. Because they are having increasing difficulty making ends meet. Because they have no fixed or safe place to live. Or because they are waiting for treatment or recovery. 

The government has a responsibility towards citizens to provide them with that freedom. After all, the government is there for the citizen and not the other way around. But where does the government's responsibility begin and where does it end? What is the basis on which citizens can rely? An increasingly pressing question in these times of crisis. The government can no longer avoid this discussion, according to National Ombudsman Reinier van Zutphen. In the Prinsjeslezing 2022 he will kick this debate off.
