Event details of ACLE Compliance and Enforcement Seminar: Dick Ruimschotel (CMC / T11)
Date 5 November 2012
Time 11:45 -13:15
Location Universiteitsbibliotheek
Room Library of the University of Amsterdam - Potgieterzaal C0.01


T11 is a list of (eleven) factors explaining (non) compliance with rules, legal rules or internal rules, but is it more than that; is it a model or perhaps a theory? In the years after its creation (in 1994), T11 has become widespread in circles of law enforcement as a tool for central inspectorates or local inspectorates, both as an analytic tool or as a starting point for action. Part of this wide spread use comes from dissemination by the Ministry of Justice, part of it from applications by Ruimschotel and CMC, an Amsterdam based consultancy and software company. Some subjects that have seen T11-analyses are European Social Fund, environmental law, building safety rules, insurance fraud and money laundering.

This seminar will explain the structure of T11, its background and its many uses. Participants will make their own T11 analysis to obtain a better understanding. Some empirical results will be discussed and some comparisons will be made with alternative models of explanation. Discussion will focus on the question what sort of improvements or elaborations can be envisaged for T11? What sort of a future lies ahead?

About the speaker

Dr. Mr. Dick Ruimschotel studied law, psychology and philosophy both in the Netherlands (Erasmus University and University of Amsterdam) and abroad (Harvard University and University of Michigan). He wrote his dissertation on a methodological subject (‘What is a good explanation?’ 1987, promoter A.D. de Groot). Subsequently, he worked for a number of commercial organizations (Intomart, Twijnstra Gudde, AEF) as well as universities (European University, Florence and Erasmus University) before starting his own company, Compliance Management Consultants (CMC) in 1998. Recently (2009-2011), he taught at the postdoctoral program Compliance and Integrity of the Free University. Although most of his work concerns commissioned projects, he has published on topics like crime, fraud, corruption, compliance, law enforcement and knowledge management. After formulating the T11 model in 1994, work on and work with T11 has been a constant factor in his professional life. Currently, he is finishing a book called ‘Goed Toezicht: grondslagen, methoden en strategieen’ (‘Qualities of supervising agents and agencies; foundations, methods and strategies’), to be published by Boom.
