Abstract:This thesis explores the role of the Dutch government in the discontinuation of ICE transport. It summarizes Dutch policy concerning ICE transport since 2001. It uses the Multi Level Perspective from Geels and Schot (2007), the Streams of Governance of Discontinuation of Stegmaier et al. (2015) and the three Pillars of Governance of Change from Borrás and Edler (2014) to describe the place of the Dutch government in the socio-technical regime of the ICE and the role of its governance in changing the socio-technical system. The research concludes that the Dutch government is actively trying to facilitate a transition from ICE transport to transport with other fuels. It is visible that the socio-technical system of transport starts to adopt niches. The Dutch government facilitates the opportunities for Dutch industries to gain from the socio-technical change by creating a supportive structure based on broad agreement and market initiative.
