Territorial Governance and Spatial Planning

Beginning with my PhD research (strategic spatial planning in the Dublin city-region, 2006-2010) I have maintained an active interest in the processes of spatial planning, land use management and transboundary cooperation. This work has included empirical research in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Germany, and Denmark as well as conceptual work on informal governance spaces (soft spaces), spatial justice and territorial cohesion.
