[en] comparative planning cultures ; attitudes ; experiment ; Belgium ; The Netherlands ; Norway
[en] Cultural impacts in planning increasingly receive attention from both academics and practitioners
around Europe. However, comparative planning cultures studies face the challenges of lacking
systematic comparison and empirical evidence, especially at the micro level of planning actors’
behaviour in interaction. This article aims to fill these gaps by (1) operationalizing the concept of
planning culture; and (2) measuring and comparing it. We base our operationalization on the culturized
planning model (Knieling & Othengrafen, 2009). We complement its explanatory power by building a
link between planning culture and planning outcome through attitudes of planning actors. This article
focuses on three attitudes: risk, trust and co-operation. To measure and compare these attitudes, we
adopt three experimental economic games and conduct an experiment with public and private
planning practitioners in three European countries: Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway. Both crosscountry and public-private differences in these attitudes are tested in the experiment. Our
experimental findings suggest that Dutch planning actors value risk aversion and trust; Norwegian
planning actors value co-operation; while (French-speaking) Belgian planning actors do not value these variables that much. This empirical evidence is largely in line with more general evidence of differences in societal cultures in these countries
