Research interests

I am interested in how the increasing number of citizens' initiatives reshapes urban planning policies and practices in the Netherlands. This is a timely issue, as a new and more prominent role for citizens in planning is foreseen in the new Environment and Planning Act that will come into effect in 2021.
