Prague, 19 – 20 June 2014
Liberalization of railway markets in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries has progressed substantially and the intensity of competition is sharply increasing. However, modal share of railways has been declining, quality of services is questionable, and liberalization is bringing about new problems in regulation of competition. The main problematic issues contain enforcing fair rules of the game, deciding between competition in and for the market, optimal level of infrastructure charges and inadequate public funding. Therefore, we are calling for papers dealing with competition in railways. Especially welcomed are papers in the following areas:
Presentatition/papers should concentrate on experience of CEE countries, or should be relevant to them. Comparative papers are especially welcomed. The workshop will be policy-oriented with the aim to formulate recommendations for policy makers.
