Joost van Onna (1976) studied social psychology and criminology. He is currently working on his PhD thesis (at the VU University of Amsterdam) about factors contributing to (non-)compliance to laws. Through his work, thesis and his long-term stay in South America, he is fascinated by the functioning and strength of informal self-regulating (economic) systems. He participates in a personal capacity.
