Research activities
Peter Kamminga conducts research in the programme 'Public Contracts: Law & Governance'.

Kamminga researches the influence of legal governance structures on cooperation between organizations and individuals. He mainly focuses on the effects of these structures - laws, regulations, and (standard)contracts - on relationships between public and private legal entities. Central question to this research is: how do legal structures perform and how can they more effectively regulate and encourage cooperation between organizations and their representatives (agents)? Sectors studied are the construction industry and the personal injury sector.
