HOW TO DEAL WITH THE TOXIC MIGRATION DEBATE?
What kind of data and evidence is suited to influence highly emotional and politicized debates that are dominated by partial or outright fake information? How to deal with media, whose framing is often difficult to avoid? And finally, how to use social media to stimulate a more rational and balanced exchange? I invite you to share your ideas with me and the audience how to use scientific evidence in the highly polarized migration debate. Key question is: to what extent can (and should) scholars be impartial?
Speakers: Leo Lucassen - Research Director, International Insitute of Social History
TOWARDS GUIDELINES AND PRINCIPLES ON KNOWLEDGE CO-CREATION
In this session we will share best practices on how to set up and conduct research together with societal partners and how to increase knowledge use. Together with researchers, practitioners and of course the attendees of this session, we aim to formulate a guideline of principles on co-creation.
Speakers: dr. Mirjam Ros-Tonen, University of Amsterdam | dr. ir. Femke Merkx, KENNIScoCREATIE
DO THEY CHANGE PEOPLE'S BEHAVIOR?
Economists and psychologists have debated the pros and cons of using rewards to change people’s behavior. Think of bonuses as a means to increase work motivation, or monetary rewards so as to encourage people to donate blood. Some have argued that rewards oftentimes backfire because people’s intrinsic motivation tends to be crowded out by rewards. Others have argued that rewards are indispensable. In this session, an economist and a psychologist will discuss the current state of knowledge in this area and draw some policy conclusions.
Speakers: Robert Dur - Professor of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam (Department of Economics)
HOW TO ORGANIZE AND STRENGTHEN THE DOMAIN OF SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES
In the past moths, various partners involved in the SSH research domain have joined forces and successfully worked together to draw up a Sector Plan for the Social Sciences and Humanities. In this session we will look back at this process with a number of stakeholders involved. But we will also look ahead: how can we co-operate to strengthen our broad domain of the Social Sciences and Humanities?
Speakers: Mark Bovens - Professor of Public Administration and quartermaster for the Sector Plan SSH 2018, Universiteit Utrecht
YOUTH’S MEDIA USE AND THE ROLE OF TEACHING AND EDUCATION
How do young people develop in our rapidly changing society? They seem to live in separate worlds, with few understanding for each other’s perspective. Paradoxically, this happens in a time in which people through social media can communicate with everyone. In this workshop, we will discuss how education can help us bridge the gaps between groups in society by stimulating youth to take the perspective of others. We need to know more about the way young adults process information on internet and social media. How do media use influence their view on the world and their interaction with other people in society? After a plenary introduction, we will discuss our research plans in two separate roundtable sessions. Each group will present and discuss the results in a plenary session.
Speakers: prof. Jan van Tartwijk, Utrecht University (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences) | dr. Bjorn Wansink, Utrecht University (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences) | prof.

EXPLORING DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURES FOR SSH DATA
The research infrastructures ODISSEI and CLARIAH enable researchers in the social sciences and humanities to answer new fundamental and societal questions. The Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations (ODISSEI) is the Dutch national infrastructure for the social sciences, and CLARIAH offers facilities for securely storing data and tools that enable researchers to enrich data, search in the data, and analyse data and search results. After a short introduction to both facilities by sociologist Pearl Dykstra and linguist Jan Odijk, Tom Every will talk on integrating the social science and humanities infrastructure, Richard Zijdeman (session 1) will focus on open data in historical research, and Wido van Peursen (session 2) will explain how religion studies can benefit from CLARIAH. Afterwards, there is room for discussion.
Speakers: prof. dr. Pearl Dykstra - Scientific director, ODISSEI | prof. dr. Jan Odijk - Scientific director, CLARIAH | dr. Tom Emery - Executive director, ODISSEI | dr. Richard Zijdeman - Chief Data Officer / Senior Researcher, IISG / University of Stirling | prof. dr. Wido van Peursen, Free University Amsterdam
