Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in democratic innovations and new forms citizen participation, in particular in how these developments reshape the role of (local) governments and the public servants working for these governments, and in the democratic implications of these developments. I approach these themes from a qualitative, interpretive perspective and take an interest in interaction research.   

Themes: democratic innovation, citizen participation, coproduction, public servants, street level bureaucracy, qualitative research
