Toon Kerkhoff obtained a Masters degree in History and a Masters degree in Philosophy (1998 – 2005) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) with specializations in social and political philosophy and early modern Dutch history. After graduation he has worked several months as an archivist for the faculty of Metamedica of the Free University Amsterdam (VU). Toon joined the Institute (then Department) of Public Administration in Leiden in 2006 as a PhD researcher. His research focused on historical comparative research (as part of a larger NWO research project) on ethics and corruption in Dutch public administration. This resulted in a PhD thesis entitled: Hidden Morals, Explicit Scandals. Public Values and Political Corruption in the Netherlands (1748-1813). Next to research, Toon has been involved in teaching bachelor and master courses on organization theory, public management, classic texts and foundations of the study of public administration, theories in public administration and administrative history. He is co-editor (with Pieter Wagenaar and Mark Rutgers) and co-author of 'Duizend jaar openbaar bestuur in Nederland: van patrimoniaal bestuur naar waarborgstaat' (Bussum, 2011), a Dutch-language book on the history of Dutch public administration. He publishes on the topics of management and organization theory, political corruption, public values and administrative history.
