Jaap van der Waerden



Jaap van der Waerden is a PhD candidate at the Methods group at the Management Faculty of Radboud University Nijmegen. In the On the Move project, an interdisciplinary team of researchers takes a network approach to investigate the sustainable mobility transition. Within this project, I study the interaction between government and community, more specifically how adaptive community participation in decision-making can lead to a successful transition towards sustainable mobility. Combining backgrounds in social sciences and technological design, my research interests focus on behavior: ranging from cooperative behavior of actors in the mini-public of decision-making to (barriers preventing) sustainable travel behavior of the community in the maxi-public.
