Case Studies on Transport Policy

Transport policy is a multidisciplinary field where engineering, economics, sociology and law must come together in well-articulated
and effective solutions. Despite being a field of effective intervention, most scientific publications address transport policy with
a theoretical and often abstract approach, making its understanding difficult for non-senior academics and even more opaque for
practitioners. While the merits of case study methods both for undergraduate and graduate teaching are recognised, academics
struggle to find empirical material that provides objective and operational illustration of the theories and approaches lectured. This
is a major barrier not only in the teaching context but also for practitioners.

Case Studies on Transport Policy covers this gap by providing a repository of relevant material to support teaching and
transferability of experiences. Observation of field experience highlighting the details and drawbacks of implementation is invaluable
to show how Transport Policy can be applied in the operational field, maintaining consistency with strategic options. Teaching
with case studies introduces students to challenges they may face in the real world, and provides a very rich learning method for
executive training at every institutional level. For practitioners, and specially governments, case studies are a powerful tool to show
the potential benefits from policy measures and packages.

Case Studies on Transport Policy and its sister journal Transport Policy provide a valuable reference for the specialised study of
transport policy offering in-depth theoretical analysis and detailed case study description and analysis, and in this way providing
very complete material for decision makers planners and practitioners to undertake transferability of experiences.
