Transport Reviews

About the prize

Named in Memory of Moshe Givoni, this prize has been set up to celebrate the contributions he made to transport research and to the running of Transport Reviews for over 10 years as Associate Editor. First presented in 2020, the award recognizes the outstanding scholarship of many of the papers published in the Journal. Each year, the Editors will select the best paper published in Transport Reviews over the previous calendar year. Winners receive a certificate, citation and a prize of €500.


We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Moshe Givoni Prize was awarded to Jeroen Bastiaanssen, Daniel Johnson and Karen Lucas for their joint paper entitled: Does transport help people to gain employment? A systematic review and meta-analysis of the empirical evidence. This paper was published in the fifth issue of 2020 (volume 40, issue 5), and was an outstanding contribution to the Journal as it re-evaluates the role of transport in providing access to employment. This study has systematically reviewed 93 existing studies, synthesised it through meta-analysis, and clearly demonstrated that car ownership significantly increases individual employment probabilities, especially among welfare recipients. The findings are important for policymakers in that they imply that job seekers may benefit from public policies targeted at improving their access to public transport, in particular for people without access to cars and in areas with fewer job opportunities.


We are delighted to announce that the 2020 Moshe Givoni Prize was awarded to Araz Taeihagh and Hazel Si Min Lim for their joint paper entitled 'Governing autonomous vehicles: Emerging responses for safety, liability, privacy, cybersecurity and industry risks. This paper was published in the 2019 Transport Reviews Special Issue on the Long Term Implications of Automated Vehicles. It was an outstanding contribution to the Journal as it took a balanced view of the benefits and the risks of AVs, reviewing the nature of the risks and the strategies that have been used to address them. It is international in its scope, highlighting the different approaches at the national levels and it identifies the general tendency of governments not to interfere with AV innovation. The paper also outlines important future research topics and the potential for unintended consequences if AVs are not seen as an integral part of the transport system.
