dr. T.A.P. Metze

Associate Professor 

Tilburg Law School
Tilburg School of Politics and Public Administration


Tamara Metze (1972) obtained her mastersdegree in political science (1997) and Science and Technology Studies (2000) both 'cum laude' at the University of Amsterdam. She worked as a mediator between citizens and government in Zaanstad, as a junior researcher at Nijenrode University, and between 1999 and 2012 she worked as a policy analyst and advisor in urban development for de Stad bv.

Currently she is employed as an associate professor at the Tilburg School for Politics and Public Administration and she teaches political science, policy networks and institutions, and several ateliers on policy making, for example on wicked problems for gverning actors. Her research is on a broad variety of socio-technological innovations and controversies in energy policies, sustainable food production, urban planning and on environmental issues.

Metze is interested in boundary work: a discursive crossing and demarcation of science from society and the influence of travelling facts on the governance of wicked problems.
