Public participation in decision-making is often seen as a way to increase public support for policy. But when does public participation lead to more support? The Like!Me Living Lab assumes that two factors are important for effective public participation, namely involving different groups in society and representing different values. It is being investigated how different groups and values can be better involved in decision-making.

He is also a member of the board of directors of the European Environmental Law Forum (EELF.info) and of the Journal for European Environmental and Planning Law (JEEPL). He is Series Editor of the EELF Book Series. His research and teaching interests include procedural and substantive environmental, energy and climate law in the Netherlands and at EU level. Prof. dr. Squintani is the author of several publications in the field of European environmental, energy and climate legislation. Prof. dr.
