Last 06th September, Karel Martens presented his new book “Transport Justice” with Robin Hickman chairing the event. This was the first activity of the new academic year 2016/17.
Karel Martens is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning, Technion Israel Institute of Technology and at the Institute for Management Research at Radboud University in the Netherlands.
He holds a master degree in Spatial Planning (1986; 1991) and a PhD in Policy Sciences (2000), both from Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In 2014, Martens was elected as Transport Professional of the Year in the Netherlands, in part because of his inspiring work on transport and justice.
Dr. Martens’ main research include the interrelationship between transport and justice, transport and land use interaction, parking policy, and democratization of governance. Together with a team of international colleagues, he has initiated a EU COST Action on Transport Equity Analysis (TEA), which brings together European experts in the field of transport project appraisal, equity assessment, transportation economics, and travel behavior, in order to develop an approach to the integration of equity in the assessment of transport projects and programs.
