Spatial aspects in the political economics of the choice of transport infrastructure projects in sweden

Project Number: 297

Project Leader: Johanna Jussila Hammes

Start Date: 2013-04-01

End Date: 2014-08-31

Description:
Research Question In Jussila Hammes (2013) I show that both political factors (the government’s share of votes in a county) and co-financing (used as an indicator of lobbying) affect the choice of transport infrastructure projects to include in the 2010-2021 National Transport Infrastructure Plan. That paper is an ad-hoc examination of the question, however. The aim of the present project is to empirically test theoretical models against one another by applying spatial econometric methods to examine the political economics of the choice of transport infrastructure projects in Sweden.
