Soft space governance arrangements are emerging all over Europe and at all geographical scales. Soft space approaches complement, but do not come in place of statutory planning. They are a reaction on and reflection of the changing context in which planning aims to be effective and as such indicate a reworking of the boundaries of the planning...

More than half of the world population lives in urban areas concentrating and increasing the magnitude of social and environmental impacts. The potential role of cities in a transition to a sustainable society started to be widely recognized after the 1992 Rio conference where the Agenda 21 program was signed.

In dit proefschrift leggen Heems en Kothuis uit waarom overstromings- dreiging bij de meeste Nederlanders ‘niet leeft’. Zij beantwoorden vanuit sociaal cultureel perspectief de vraag hoe Nederlanders aan het begin van de 21e eeuw betekenis geven aan de omgang met waterveiligheid. Na de (bijna) overstromingen van de rivieren in 1993 en 1995 zette...

One of the central tenets of adaptive management is polycentric governance. Yet, despite the popularity of the concept, few detailed case studies of polycentric governance systems exist. In this paper, we aim to partly fill this gap. We describe water management between the years 1000 and 1953 on the Dutch island of IJsselmonde in the...

The key interest is how central regulation is...
