  • Andreas Faludi was nominated for the honorary doctorate by the Faculty of Spatial Sciences because of his great impact on European planning as a frontrunner and leader of the academic debate.

Andreas Faludi has provided the field of planning with a firm theoretical foundation. He is the main editor of several academic compilations about a series of investigations into spatial planning, research and policy in Europe, published by the Lincoln Institute. He is known as the driving force behind the analysis of European planning and is considered to be one of the most outstanding authors on this subject.

In the nineties he pursued the notion of ‘environmental planning’ as an umbrella concept for various forms of Dutch planning, including spatial planning, water management, environmental planning, traffic and infrastructure planning. As a result of this debate the Dutch government intends to bring over 60 separate laws together in one overall environmental law.
