Planning interventions influence the outcomes of land and property markets, in terms of quantity, quality and price of land and real estate. These planning interventions may consist of regulatory planning interventions, interventions that (re)shape or (re)structure the market and interventions that facilitate self-organizing planning initiatives. These interventions shape property rights regimes and define the positions and investment strategies of individual property rights holders. My research focuses on the one hand on the analysis of land and property market outcomes and the way they have been influenced – deliberately or as an unwanted side effect – by planning interventions, and on the other hand on testing – in experimental settings, via both game-theoretical simulations and ‘serious games’- the possible impact of proposed interventions on land and property markets. In my talk I will discuss recent results of research with respect to ‘Coasian’ planning interventions via market restructuring of well-defined property rights regimes in the Netherlands and research in situations of ambiguous property rights in Vietnam and Indonesia.

He has published many papers in this field in international planning and real estate journals and is regularly invited as a speaker at international conferences and seminars. He also has been and is involved in many national and international research projects in these fields. A growing number of these projects have a global orientation, with on-going research and cooperation in Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea and China. In 2017 he was awarded a fellowship in the Lincoln Institute China Program for research into value capture and transit oriented development in Chinese cities.
