Dorina Pojani

During the second SP&S seminar in this period, Dorina Pojani presented parts of her PhD research which she has carried out at the Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania, and the University of California, Los Angeles. In her research she examined potentialities for urban transport planning in the city of Tirana. She demonstrated that large parts of the population in this city suffer from an explosive growth of car mobility. Women, children and senior citizens are specifically affected by this development. However, the transition from a totalitarian communist regime to an incipient system of democracy has left the planning authorities of Tirana with few instruments to support sustainable modes of transport. Against this background Dorina presented a range of strategies that she considers promising. A public transport system depending on buses is among these.
