Abstract:This thesis focusses on developing a balanced soft policy for nature in the province of Gelderland to secure coherent activities by stakeholders. In order to create policy coherence, the policy has to anticipate to the different preferences of the stakeholders. This can be done by creating a jointly search towards a policy on nature which is defined by the literature as: (I) interactive policy making. This concept consists of two elements: (I.I) the content and (I.II) the process. The preferences of the stakeholders on both aspects will be examined to determine the preferences and provide an advise on the matter. Besides the preferences of the stakeholders on interactive policy making, the thesis will also focus on examining the preferences on (II) the involvement of citizens and companies. Here a distinction is made between (II.I) motives and circumstances, and (II.II) contribution and support. To find out what the stakeholders prefer on both interactive policy making and the involvement of citizens and companies on nature, 24 interviews will be conducted with a diverse group of stakeholders involved with nature and landscapes. The data from the interviews will lead to an advise on how and under what conditions the province of Gelderland is able to design a balanced soft policy.
