Under Reform’s Summer School on Governance and Mobility was held at IISc Bangalore 4-6 March 2020. The aim of the School was to advance participant expertise on the theoretical, methodological and analytical approaches available for understanding the role that governance plays in influencing transport and mobility.
The School was led by the Under Reform research team, bringing together interdisciplinary and international faculty, and combining expertise in urban and transport studies and political science. The team included Professor Ashish Verma (IISc Bangalore), Professor Sanjay Gupta (SPA Delhi), Professor Greg Marsden (ITS, University of Leeds), Dr Louise Reardon (INLOGOV, University of Birmingham) and Dr Morgan Campbell (ITS, University of Leeds). Participants worked with the team through a variety of participatory sessions including reading groups, problem-led tasks, and case study discussions. In doing so, participants were guided to apply their learning on governance to live transport and mobility issues affecting India.
The School was primarily aimed at advancing the expertise of PhD students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in transport governance.
