exPERts - Making sense of planning expertise: housing policy and the role of experts in the Programa Especial de Realojamento (PER)

In doing so, we build on a constructivist understanding of experts’ knowledge, which conceives policy approaches as embodying ideological and value assumptions (Wagenaar 2011, Latour 2005, Callon et al 2009) and travelling between (and adapting to) to a variety of local contexts (Sanyal 2005, Knieling & Othengrafen 2009, Peck & Theodore 2010, Healey 2013), and sees experts’ role beyond the deployment of their professional skills (Fischer & Forester 1993, Hoppe 1999, Jasanoff 2003, Fischer 2009).
