Profile

Peter Driessen is full professor of Environmental Governance at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. He is also vice-dean for research of the Faculty of Geosciences and head of the reserach group Environmental Governance. 

Driessen's research contributes to the scholarly and political debate on sustainability governance, by analysing interventions that have the potential to make governance outcomes more congruent with sustainability goals. In short, his research addresses a long-standing theoretical and empirical concern of "what works where, when and why". Special attention is given to institutional, legal, and social conditions that may foster sustainable development. The research takes as a presumption that governance arrangements that aim to enhance sustainable development should not only be effective, but also legitimate and efficient.

By reflecting on particular practices, insights are gained in the conditions under which various modes of governance are successful or unsuccessful. His research covers practices such as climate adaptation, urban planning and water management. Furthermore, his research interests include interactive policy-making, environmental impact assessment, and science-policy interactions.

According to mainstream literature, the promotion of sustainable development especially calls for collaborative and deliberative governance arrangements, paying attention to stakeholder participation and partnerships among multiple actors and across several policy levels. These arrangements are seen as able to deal with the complex, multi-scale, cross-sectoral and long-term aspects of sustainable development in a more adequate manner than hierarchical arrangements. Nevertheless, there is still a role to play for good old-fashioned state intervention, especially in situations of urgency or protection of vulnerable societal values. In fact, what is needed is a context specific mixture of networked, market and hierarchical forms of governance. The most important question is: what works where, when and why?

The main aim of his research is to make a relevant and significant contribution to the scholarly and political debate by analysing interventions that have the potential to make governance outcomes more congruent with sustainability goals. Special attention is given to institutional, legal, and social conditions that may foster sustainable development. The research takes as a presumption that governance arrangements that aim to enhance sustainable development should not only be effective, but also legitimate and efficient.

By reflecting on particular practices, insights are gained in the conditions under which various modes of environmental governance are successful or unsuccessful. His research covers practices like climate adaptation, urban planning, and water management. Furthermore, his research interests include interactive policy-making, environmental impact assessment, and science-policy interactions.

Completed projects

Project:
STAR-FLOOD 01.10.2012 to 31.03.2016
General project description

STAR-FLOOD stands for: “STrengthening And Redesigning European FLOOD risk practices: Towards appropriate and resilient flood risk governance arrangements”. This programme was recently awarded a grant of 5.4 Million Euros by the European Union (FP7).


The project is focused on analysing, explaining, evaluating and designing policies to better deal with flood risks from rivers in urban agglomerations across Europe. The results of this ambitious programme are expected to be highly relevant for policies and law at the European, national and regional level and for the development of public-private partnerships.
