prof. dr. C. (Christian) Zuidema
My research and teaching come together under the heading of 'Planning for Sustainable Tranformations'. Following my PhD work on environmental planning, I increasingly engaged with topics such as sustainable urban managment and integrated energy planning. My research interests also include theoretical work on governance renewal, post-contingency, adaptive planning and decentralisation. I am and have been involved in numerous international research projects, notably on the topic of Integrated Energy Planning.
Apart form my journal publications, I published various books, such as Stimulating Local Environmental Policy (2011), Smart Methods for Environmental Externalities (2012) and Decentralization in Environmental Governance; a post-contingency approach (2016). Also, I have be a co-organizer of the International Groningen Summer School for PhDs since 2015.
