Dr. Mr. N. (Niek) Mouter MSc


Niek Mouter: I am an associate professor of Infrastructure Policy Appraisal at TU Delft’s Transport & Logistics group, with a background in economics (MSc) and philosophy of law (LLM).

Curriculum Vitae


My research focuses on improving the appraisal of infrastructure projects and in my work I combine insights from various disciplines such as economics, philosophy, political science and urban planning.

My current work, for instance, focuses on the inclusion of ethical considerations in appraisal models, such as the Cost-Benefit Analysis, and improving the usability of appraisal models for politicians, civil servants and other stakeholders. I (co)developed new appraisal approaches such as ‘willingness to allocate public budget experiments’ and ‘Participatory Value Evaluation’

I am currently editing a book for Elsevier about Appraisal Methods for Transport Policy and Planning.
