Citizen Knowledge integration in decision-making processes of sustainable urban governance

The aim of this PhD project is to investigate factors that determine a higher/lower level of citizen knowledge integration in decision-making processes of sustainable urban governance? The PhD research draws on theoretical perspectives derived from four literatures: [1] social studies of science and technology, [2] third wave governance studies, [3] alternative sustainable urbanism studies, and [4] innovation and transition studies. Qualitative data are collected through semi-structured interviews.
