This thesis examines the regulation of architects in Belgium and the Netherlands and discusses who is allowed to use the title and practice the profession. Also the contractual liability of architects is compared. The free movement of architects is analyzed in an EU context. Finally the book contains an economic analysis of the regulation of architects to determine whether the Dutch of Belgian regulation is necessary and proportional to reach the goals set. In this way the thesis aims to determine whether the Dutch or the Belgian combination of regulations and contract law provisions is most cost-efficient from an economic point of view.
