Following previous discussion events on rail transport, we continue debating railway liberalisation in Europe. The current developments on the European level trigger the question how liberalization will evolve. Especially, they want to know which form competition will take: will competition be about access as was the original idea of the European Commission or will it rather evolve into tendering of various bits and pieces of the railway system?
The discussions will be centred around following questions:
- What will competition look like in the short, medium and long run?
- Will there be competition at all?
- If desirable, how can and will it be promoted?
- How can and will it be enforced?
- And what role will regulators play in the short, medium and long run in promoting and enforcing such competition?
Keeping to one of FSR’s guiding principles, namely stakeholder involvement, this Forum will feature presentations from representatives of the European Commission, Ministries, regulators, operators, international associations of stakeholders and academics.For more information please contact FSR.email@example.com
