The Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford is currently accepting applications for the Governance, Policy and Delivery course, to be held Tuesday 28 June – Friday 1 July, at Kellogg College, University of Oxford. The course is part of our Global Challenges in Transport programme, which provides researchers and practitioners with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise, supported by the latest research evidence, to address the complexity associated with making transport sustainable.
The course will explore the roles of different actors and institutions in the management and evolution of transport systems in a range of geographical contexts. The lectures and interactive workshops examine how policies are formulated and implemented at a range of spatial scales, and how such interventions vary in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. The course also looks into decision-making and the issues of acceptability and governance with sessions focusing on the mobility requirements for both rural and urban societies globally.
Key speakers include Heather Allen (TRL); Prof Iain Docherty (University of Glasgow); Dr Tim Schwanen (University of Oxford). The full programme is available at http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/programmes/execed/gct/governance-policy-and-local-delivery .
The course fees cover all materials, 21 contact hours accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, 3 nights’ en-suite accommodation at Kellogg College, and all meals and refreshments during the course (including a formal networking dinner on the first evening). Fees are as follows:
- Private Sector: £3,500
- Public Sector / Academic: £1,500
- PhD: £500
We are able to offer partial scholarships to a limited number of participants, as well as group discounts, and discounts to those attending several Global Challenges in Transport courses.
