Dr. Eva E. A. Wolf is an assistant-professor at the Tilburg University who specializes in policy conflicts. She has published her work in academic journals, such as Public Administration, Governance and Policy Sciences, and has also written books written for a non-academic audience, such as "De waarde van weerstand", based on her PhD thesis, and "Ontbindend en bindend besturen van de omgeving", based on a research project researching judicialization of environmental conflicts.
Eva is an expert on policy conflicts, ranging from conflicts on intensive livestock farming, to conflicts on wind turbine and highway construction. She is currently the consortium leader and PI of the JPI Urban Europe project Conflict in Transformations (CONTRA), which studies how climate change conflict are dealt with in different institutional environments, what this means for waging productive policy conflicts and how the arts, and specifically theater, may contribute to waging better conflicts. In the past she has studied the impact of judicialization on policy conflicts and conflict escalation in the Flemish conflict on the Oosterweelverbinding (Oosterweel connection) highway.
Eva places a high value on making academic work count in practice. She works and has worked together with partners such as the municipality of Tilburg and the Province of North-Brabant, and regularly delivers lectures, essays and speeches to practitioner-audiences, such as the RVO, NP-RES, Energy Regions, and civil servants working in municipalities, provinces and the national government in both the Netherlands and Belgium (Flanders).
