PhD Project:

Addressing urban governance challenges of infrastructure resilience

Approaching urban and infrastructure resilience requires flexible and adaptive governance structures in cities in order to deal with issues of complexity and uncertainty as well as to join different epistemic communities. My PhD project analyses institutional design and capacity building in the interface of infrastructure management and urban development in the cities of Rotterdam (NL) and Christchurch (NZ). Using a governance perspective, I analyse how utilities are involved in resilience building processes from strategy formation to implementation. The findings of the study should contribute to a better understanding of conflicts and potentials that urban resilience poses to infrastructure management and vice versa.
