Transport as a source of complex social, economic and political conflicts.
One of the perhaps less overlooked challenges today is transport policy. Transport is at the same time a source of competitiveness, part of the quality of life, a major cause of climate change or a means of spreading and halting epidemics. Transport is becoming a residential, political and economic, land use issue at the same time. Today, technically, almost all transport problems can be solved. However, the social impact of transport is becoming increasingly interesting.
