TRANSPORT POLICY ABROAD: TRAINING CENTERS AND MAIN RESEARCH AREAS

Cover Page

Abstract


The article based on the analysis of public sources examines the structure, goals and main directions of works of foreign scientific and educational centers in the field of transport policy - an independent area of the state activity that has (due to the infrastructural nature of the object of its regulation which is transport) characteristics of universality and reveal the close relationship and overlapping with many other areas (economic, social, innovation, industrial, regional, etc.). Transport policy as a field of research has links and intersections with the goals of a number of other political science areas and sub-disciplines (primarily with public policy and management, political regionalism, international relations and geopolitics, etc.). The authors state that theoretical and applied research in this complex and interdisciplinary field are carried out by organizations that are structural units of educational institutions and by independent institutions. The main trend of their research on general and special issues of transport policy is interdisciplinary approach used during the analysis. As for training, it is carried out by a number of foreign universities - both classical and specialized (mainly technical) universities. At the same time, it is primarily interdisciplinary in nature, based on a combination of areas such as politics, public administration, strategic management, transport economics, etc., which is reflected in the curriculum and in the content of individual disciplines. However, such training has not yet become a widespread phenomenon, and the diverse possibilities of political science in many courses remain underused. The article makes a general conclusion that theoretical and applied research, as well as training in the field of transport policy retain significant reserves, which are still very far from being exhausted. This is especially true of political science, whose heuristic and educational potential for the needs of the transport industry remains undiscovered.
