Forum Papers


Each year, the International Transport Forum focuses on a specific theme. The Forum commissions analytical papers from leading thinkers to frame the debate. In 2009 and 2010 the commissioned papers appeared in the series Forum Papers. From 2011, the commissioned papers are integrated into the Discussion Papers series.
