    Introducing...

    Marco Bontje is assistant professor in urban geography at the Department of Geography, Planning and International Development Studies of the University of Amsterdam. Within the research institute AISSR he is member of the research group Urban Geographies.

    While his main research interest lies in urban geographic issues, his research has crossed disciplinary boundaries towards urban and regional planning, economic geography and environmental geography. Research topics so far have included the effectiveness of Dutch national urbanisation policy (PhD thesis); sustainable development of city-edge and (post-)suburban business locations; spatial, social and economic conditions for internationally competitive creative knowledge cities; and the impact of demographic and economic decline on cities and regions. All these topics have been studied in comparative projects including  cases from several European countries. Marco's ambition is to continue on this comparative path and also cross continental boundaries in the near future. A first step towards this goal was a sabbatical leave of 3 months at City University Hong Kong (September - December 2012), resulting in research about the residential attractiveness of Shenzhen (China) for people working in creative industries.

    Currently Marco's two main research foci are:
    - Creative knowledge cities and regions. After completing the project 'The Inventive City' which involved a comparison of the role of creativity and knowledge in the competitiveness strategies of 7 European city-regions, he became involved in the EU 6th Framework project Accommodating Creative Knowledge (ACRE) (2006-2010) and the NWO-funded project Implications of location preferences of highly educated workers for spatial development of metropolitan areas (2012-2014).
    - Shrinking cities and regions. Marco was involved in a study of the Parkstad Limburg region in the south of the Netherlands, was member of the Management Committee of the COST Action 'Cities Regrowing Smaller' (2009-2013), and is currently involved in two JPI Urban Europe projects connected to this topic: 'Bright Future for Black Towns' (2017-2020) and '3S RECIPE - Smart Shrinkage Solutions' (2017-2020), as well as the Marie Curie-Sklodowska International Training Network RE-CITY - Reviving Shrinking Cities.

    Marco's teaching experience includes lectures, working groups, individual supervision of bachelor and master theses (including a Master Thesis Project for geography and planning students in Shenzhen, China), and the organisation of foreign field trips. The international and comparative nature of his research is reflected in his teaching, which is largely about the topics mentioned above. From 2006 until 2013 he was the programme director of the Research Master Urban Studies, an interdisciplinary and very international master programme, both in terms of the programme content and the student population. He is currently still involved in this research master as exchange coordinator and lecturer of the Professional and Academic Skills Seminar.

  • Teaching

    Teaching

    Some of my current and recent teaching activities in the bachelor and master programmes of Human Geography and Planning and in our research master programmes:

    • Member of Board of Examiners Bachelor and Master Human Geography and Planning, 2011-2019
    • Coordinator exchange / internationlaisation, Bachelor Human Geography and Planning and Research Master Urban Studies
    • Programme director and academic adviser of the Research Master Urban Studies, 2006-2013 (programme name until 1 September 2012: Research Master Metropolitan Studies)
    • Programme director of the Research Master Human Geography, Planning and Development Studies, 2006-2010 (meanwhile the programme has changed its name and thematic focus and is now the Research Master International Development Studies)

    • Second year bachelor course 'Migration and Population Dynamics': in English since 2018, in previous years in Dutch - 'Bevolkingsdynamiek en Migratie'. One of the profiling courses in our bachelor programme, combining an introduction to demographic analysis with several focus topics in population geography and migration studies (e.g. prognoses / forecasting, population policies, residnetial preferences, selective migration, integration, segregation).
    • Second yer bachelor course 'Research Abroad': fieldwork trip to Taiwan in 2019 (and probably again in 2020).
    • First year bachelor course 'Mondialisering en Stedelijke Ontwikkeling' ('Mondialisation and Urban Development'): introducing geography students to the many dimension of mondialisation and its influence on urban development. Includes both thematic and regionally oriented lectures; working groups; fieldwork assignments in and around Amsterdam.
    • Third year bachelor courses 'Scriptieproject Sociale Geografie' (Thesis Project Human Geography) and 'Scriptieproject Planologie' ('Thesis Project Urban/Regional Planning'): in working group sessions, students design the research design for their bachelor thesis step-by-step and present it to each other and the teaching staff. Then each of them gathers data, analyses it and writes a bachelor thesis under our supervision. Students define their own specific theme within a broad overarching theme. Themes have included: the city and the crisis; the university and the city; shrinkage and growth; neighbourhood careers; creativity, diversity and the city; polycentric urban regions.
    • Thesis Seminar Research Master Urban Studies
    • Supervisor of several master theses in Human Geography and Planning, and of several bachelor theses in Planning based on research internships (stage-scripties).
