Project:
In Search of the Poldermodel. Participation and Representation in Dutch Water Boards in the Pre-Democratic Era 01.09.2011 to 01.09.2015
General project description

Is it true - as is often assumed -  that the Dutch 'poldermodel' of consensual politics had its origins in the medieval models of water management? Has the necessity of intensive collaboration to combat the dangers of sea and river flooding in these low-lying and wet parts created a political culture of participation, consensus and compromise? This project seeks to investigate the governance of water management institutions before the emergence of modern democracy. It is set within the wider debate about the contribution of pre-modern corporate institutions in the creation of prosperous societies. The project uses Dutch polders as laboratories to see if and how participation and representation improved the quality of water management. The Dutch epxerience is compared to those in adjacent regions, such as Flanders and Northern Germany.
The project is a collaboration between Utrecht University, the Huygens ING Institute and the Free University in Amsterdam.
