Toelichting (Engels) The Netherlands are protected from storm surges and river floods by the Deltaworks: a reinforcement of the primary flood defence system consisting of coastal dunes, dikes and storm-surge barriers. These were implemented in response to the dramatic flooding disaster in 1953. Over the last 50 years, billions of euros have been invested in this scheme creating a feeling of safety in society. However, in this paper we argue that the current sense of safety may be inappropriate.
