101-0481-00LReadings in Transport Policy3 credits2GK. W. Axhausen
AbstractThis course will explore the issues and constraints of transport policy through the joint readings of a set of relevant papers.

The class will meet every three weeks to discuss the texts.
ObjectiveFamiliarize the students with issues of transport policy making and the conflicts arising.

Train the ability to read critically and to summarize his/her understanding for him/herself and others through a review paper, paper abstracts and a paper review.
