WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY, THE NETHERLANDS
GOVERNANCE OF WICKED PROBLEMS
The mission of the Public Administration and Policy group at Wageningen University is to study the governance of wicked problems in the interrelated domains of climate, water, land and agriculture, and to use the generated insights to develop governance arrangements. By doing so the group aims to contribute to scientific progress, to societal debates, and to policy practice.
Dr. Art Dewulf and Prof. Katrien Termeer have contributed to the perspective study on governance for C2C, for the Flemish Waste Agency (OVAM) as part of the C2CN Interreg project. They also contribute to the research line on multi-actor governance for sustainable materials management in the Policy Research Centre for Sustainable Materials Management (SuMMa), and supervise together with Dr. Marc Craps the PhD research of Inge Vermeersch. As part of the Cycloop network for action research and facilitation of multi-actor collaboration, Art Dewulf has contributed to research and consulting projects on dealing with the variety of stakeholders in Enhanced Landfill Mining.
