The recently published book 'Wet & Geschiedenis Wet Clawback' is edited by Geert Raaijmakers and Ebbo Haantjes. In the publication, the realisation of the Clawback law is explained per section of the law. The parliamentary discussions that led to the realisation of the bill are also described. The publication is a reference book for academics, but also for people who use the Clawback law in practice, such as lawyers and judges.
