prof.dr. (Martin) WM de Jong


Prof. dr. W.M. (Martin) de Jong is Scientific Director of the Erasmus Initiative 'Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity', one of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) flagship research initiatives. It was jointly established by Erasmus School of Law (ESL), Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) and Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil) and aims to gain knowledge on the inclusion of weak or less-well represented stakeholders in governance and management. It also has an agenda setting role in the broader societal and political debate on this topic.

Along with the above position he is professor at both ESL and RSM (each for 50% of his time) and has a part-time professor position at the School of International Relations and Public Affairs (SIRPA) of Fudan University in Shanghai. Given his 25 year international experience in research, education and entrepreneurship on public policy, decision making, urban studies, infrastructure development and cross-cultural management, it is his goal to make the initiative both locally relevant through knowledge dissemination in the Randstad Area and to give it strong global exposure by establishing partnerships in a number of leading universities around the world.

Martin de Jong (born 1970 in Vlaardingen, married, three children) has obtained his master’s degree in Public Administration from Erasmus University Rotterdam and Leiden University (joint degree) in 1993. He obtained his PhD degree in Systems Engineering and Policy Analysis from Delft University of Technology in 1999. He spent 25 years of his working life at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management of Delft University of Technology and climbed the ranks there from PhD student to Antoni van Leeuwenhoek research professor in ‘urban and infrastructure development in China’. In this period he has also worked or been a visiting scholar at University of Amsterdam, George Mason University, Aalto University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Dalian University of Technology. He has been an advisor to the Second Chamber of Dutch Parliament, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, the Dutch national gas enterprise, Eurocities, the Nordic Road Federation, the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communication, the Chinese cities of Shenzhen (Guangdong province) and Jingmen (Hubei province) and a host of other organisations.

During his career, Martin de Jong has specialized in the following topics: policy and governance, planning and decision-making in China, transport infrastructures, sustainable urban development, city branding, Corporate Social Responsibility and cross-cultural management.
