Dear Colleagues,

CALL FOR PAPERS: AAG Annual Meeting, April 10-14, 2018

Transit-Oriented or Transit-Adjacent Development?
Interrogating the contribution of public-transport-driven development to Social Equity and Inclusion in cities of the Global South

Sessions Organisers: Daniel Oviedo Hernandez (University College London) and Ersilia Verlinghieri (University of Oxford)

In recent years we have witnessed the revival of public transport as a central measure in local and global urban policy agendas. This is reflected in international debates, which increasingly focus on how to enable equitable and inclusive accessibility through transport policies at all levels (UN-Habitat, 2016). The transport sector has historically been one of the largest areas in national and local investment globally (UN-Habitat, 2013), and it is critically important that infrastructure investment supports city development objectives. Transport and mobility plans and regulations in major cities in the Global South tend to incorporate increased social inclusion and equity as central objectives in their discourse (Scholl et al., 2016). However, also for what concerns public transportation, conceptual and empirical approaches for the study of mobilities, as well as the toolkits for mainstream transport planning often do not incorporate specific or rigorous indicators that permit measuring their contribution to accessibility, equity and social development (Geurs and van Wee, 2004; Lucas and Jones, 2012; van Wee, 2016). This is partly a result of traditional planning methods that see urban mobility primary as a transport problem and focus on demand and efficiency, without explicitly considering social or spatial equity (Keeling, 2008a; Keeling, 2008b) or the different agents that participate in the construction of diverse forms of mobility in their everyday practices (Creswell, 2011).

Providing methodological, conceptual and policy insights from different contexts in the Global South, this panel aims to critically examine how public transport investments and the associated urban development interact with spatial and social mobilities in the reproduction of both spatial and social inequities in cities of the Global South. Specifically, the session seeks to discuss:

-          the contribution of recent public transport investments, programmes and plans to the multiple accessibility needs of modern urban dwellers in developing cities.

-          the role of public urban transportation as urban development policy, comparing the distributional effects of proximity to infrastructure and the coherence between stated policy objectives and observable changes in the cities' development trajectories.

-          how the accessibility and distributional impacts of public transport investment in developing countries are influenced by a range of evolving relationships between the State, civil society and private sector.

-          the rhetorical use of the term Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in urban policies in first and second tier cities of the Global South.

-          the positive and negative implications of global infrastructural trends such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and aerial cable-cars as forms of restructuring public transport and addressing longstanding accessibility deficits.

Please email enquiries and abstracts (250 words) to Daniel Oviedo Hernandez ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Ersilia Verlinghieri ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) by 22th October. Authors must register for the conference and submit their abstracts through the AAG website by the October 25th deadline to be added to the paper session.
