Workshop | The economics of sustainable transport

The Forum for Research on Eastern Europe: Climate and Environment (FREECE) together with the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) invites academics to join a one-day workshop session on the economics of sustainable transport at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE).

We are delighted to invite you to our workshop on the "Economics of Sustainable Transport." In this workshop, we will explore the intricate relationship between transportation and the environment. The theme of the workshop is broad, and we welcome paper submissions on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: distributional effects of fuel taxation, air pollution, emission reductions, congestion charges, electric vehicle adoption, tax incidence, and aviation decarbonization. 

Interested in presenting your research on transport at the workshop? Submit your paper to julius.andersson@hhs.se by October 27.


Just like last year (The Economics of Air Pollution)the workshop will consists of two elements: (1) a session with paper presentations, and (2) keynote speeches from invited experts in the field. The workshop will thus provide presentations of the latest research and guidance on the future of the field to economists interested in doing their own research on the topic.
