Crisis management

PhD project:

Enhancing smart disaster governance: Assessing the potential of the net-centric approach

Promotores: Prof. Dr. Peter Groenewegen and Prof. Dr. Arjen Boin (Leiden University)

Mentor: Dr. Kees Boersma 

In February 2015 I started my PhD on crisis management governance in the NWO-funded Smart Governance project. The research question I aim to answer is: “How can heterogeneous information networks be mapped, interpreted and governed to make netcentric response more adaptive?” I will conduct ethnographic studies in emergency response rooms and decision-making teams among our partnering Safety Regions, combined with a multi-layered network analysis (including social media), to chart patterns in information streams among and between different networks involved in (and outside) the response operation.
