|Toelichting (Engels)||The Netherlands is subject to a transition towards an integrated flood risk management in which spatial adaptation is taken into account. The Multi-Layer Safety Approach is a framework that mixes flood risk management with spatial planning and disaster management to decrease more the risk of flooding. In the Netherlands it has been applied in different cities, including Zwolle. This research focuses on the state of integration between the Multi-Layer Safety Approach and Strategic Spatial Planning in the case of Zwolle. Strategic Spatial Planning theory reflects principles that should be present within the application of the Multi-Layer Safety Approach. Transition theory shares concepts with Strategic Spatial Planning theory which are reflected in the transition towards an integrated flood risk management. Dependency theory is also studied to better understand if and how an integration between the Multi-Layer Safety Approach and Strategic Spatial Planning is happening. This integration is studied by observing what the dependencies are between the actors involved in the development of the flood risk plan in Zwolle. Dependency theory in policy making gives insights about how processes of governance are shaped and what are the factors that condition a policy outcome.|
