TRA500 Europeisk transportpolitikk (Høst 2020)

Om emnet

The European Union, as well as many European countries, are taking steps to meet the rising challenges in the transport sector. For example the European Commission's low-emission mobility strategy sets guiding principles to Member States to introduce low-emission alternative energies and vehicles, encouraging modal shift to active travel (cycling and walking), public transport and/or shared mobility schemes, such as bike, car-sharing and car-pooling, to reduce congestion and pollution. 

In the course, major policy challenges, goals, conflicting interests, and policy impacts on national and European level are discussed, with empahsis on the transition toward a more sustainable transport system and land passanger transport policies in general. The course also provides an introduction to some central public policy theories. 

The course will emphasize:

  • Land passanger transport
  • Sustainable transport systems/sustainable transition
  • EUs transport policies and other relevant documents
