About Shelley Kotze

Originally from Devon, in the UK and arrived in Gothenburg in Autumn 2017. Previously I spent seven years in Cape Town, South Africa. Prior to starting my PhD, in Gothenburg I have been working as a project assistant within the Urban Rural Gothenburg Research Forum, and as a guest researcher at Mistra Urban Futures. My research has included leading projects exploring issues of immigrant integration, gender mainstreaming in projects and the influence of trust on project building.

My current research focuses on the transformation process that occurs between the planning for and the manifestation, management and maintenance of urban green spaces. Green spaces in the city are important for many purposes. For urban green spaces to be sustainable in the long-term the maintenance of them needs to be in the planning process. I am framing my PhD research as a critical exploration of the process of planning for urban green space; this includes how the ongoing management and maintenance of said space is considered and written into the planning process, and how well that is translated into action. I anticipate that a better understanding of this process will contribute to the better management of urban green space, in that it actually reflects the plans which municipalities spend so much public money on.
