TRANSPORT REGIONS: THEORETICAL NOTIONS ON COOPERATION

VERVOERSREGIO'S: THEORETISCHE KANTTEKENINGEN BIJ SAMENWERKING

The Dutch government has launched incentives to create new regional public authorities (transport regions) to enable a more coherent and efficient transport policy. The theories of Olson and Ostrom are used to discuss and describe this reorganization process. An attempt is made to discuss governmental objectives of living with traffic and accessibility as public goods or common pool resources (divided in resource systems and resourse units). The two theories are used to describe, explain and predict success or failure of the policy with regard to the objectives. It is concluded that failure, rather than success, should be expected. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 871533.
