My name is Marianne van Bochove and I am a Senior Researcher at the Centre of Expertise Governance of Urban Transitions (GUTs) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS). I obtained my PhD in Sociology in 2012 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. My research interests and expertise include: 

  • Local citizen participation
  • Innovative solutions for ageing in place
  • Urban development
  • The societal impact of COVID-19
  • Changing roles of professionals and citizens in health and social care
  • Migrant care work
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

I have published in academic journals including Global Networks, Population, Space & Place, Current Sociology, Administration & Society, and British Journal of Criminology (see 'Publicaties' for a full list).


I am interested in international collaboration for research in the field of urban sociology, governance, voluntary work, citizen participation, and ageing in place. If you want to know more about my research projects, please contact me at
