Research Interests

Current Research

Andreas’ primary research interests focus on the relationship between planning and land policy, in particular on the role of landowners in planning and how public planning authorities successfully use property rights-instruments to shape their behaviour towards more sustainability.

His research and teaching are focusing on the intersection of planning law and land policy as well as planning education. He joined Ulster University to conduct a research project on contract-based added value capture and comparative research in the area of planning law.

His current research project compares public approaches to capture planning-related added value across different legislations. In particular, he is interested in comparing the different effectiveness of contract-based strategies vs. law-based strategies, such as Swiss compensation mechanism (art. 5 SPA) and section 106 agreements in the UK.
