Researcher, European research-project TRANSIT

Linda Zuijderwijk is an urban sociologist, working as a researcher of social innovation in TRANSIT. Her objective is to make this academic research accessible and useful ‘beyond academics’ and to engage all actors as soon as possible, aiming at inclusive research.

She is writing her Ph.D-thesis on the use and production of public space embedded in ‘global senses of place’, related to super-diversity (the increasing ethnic, social and economic diversity in cities in the Global North), changing urban Public and Market relations and policies of urban citizenship.
