Head of the Department of Political Science and Chair in Public Policy at the University of Amsterdam, is interested in new practices of democratic governance, environmental politics, and urban politics. Currently he is working on transnational policy-discourse formations in several research projects on food safety in Europe and the role of experts in policy making, which materialized from major projects on the role of designers (architects, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects) in regional planning. Theoretically he seeks to develop new methods of interpretive public policy analysis. Hajer is currently working on two books, one on the politics of design, and one on politics as performance, in which he seeks to combine his previous work on discourse with two new dimensions of politics: dramaturgy and liberation.
