Abstract:In this paper, the main research question is: “which actions have municipalities chosen in implementing the national Dutch policy Action Program Integral Approach Jihadism’, and which factors explain the differences in action among Dutch municipalities”? This question is answered with the use of the Theory of Planned Behaviour from Icek Ajzen and Martin Fishbein. The theory suggests that behaviour (in this research the level of compliance with the action program) is influenced by the attitude, subjective norm and perceived behavioural control of the actor. These concepts, from the municipalities, were researched via conducted interviews with policy officers. Three propositions were researched with this data, which all suggest a relation between the earlier formulated theoretical concepts, and the level of compliance with the action program. Neither the proposition suggesting a relation between the attitude of a municipality and the level of compliance nor the proposition suggesting a relation between the subjective norm and the level of compliance were confirmed in this context. The proposition which suggests a relation between the perceived behavioural control and the level of compliance is confirmed to a high extent in this context, and therefore the differences in action among Dutch municipalities in implementing the national policy could be explained: due to differences in the availability of instruments and means.
