    A schepen is a Dutch word referring to a municipal civic office in Dutch-speaking countries. The term is still in use in Belgium, but it has been replaced by wethouder in the Netherlands. The closest English terms are alderman, member of the municipal executive, councillor and magistrate, depending on the context. The word schepen is not used in English, so this article refers only to the office in Dutch-speaking countries.
