This unique book examines the role of institutions in transport regulation within a sustainability and comparative Trans-Atlantic framework. With contributions from leading experts in the field, three areas of analysis are provided: barriers to implementation of reforms, regulatory issues and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). The discussion on barriers focuses on political and public acceptance, as well as equity and environmental justice. Regulatory reform analyses include comparative discussions of railroad and airline deregulation inNorth America and Europe which are complimented with analyses of EU integration and transport regulation for sustainability, transport pricing and inter country competition. Finally, infrastructure finance and evaluation frameworks forPPP form the topical focus for a comprehensive assessment of PPP within the transport sector.Rietveld, Piet is the author of 'Institutions and Sustainable Transport Regulatory Reform in Advanced Economies', published 2007 under ISBN 9781845426286 and ISBN 1845426282.
