Abstract

This paper presents a crosscutting literature review within the two fields of Transport Policy and Peace Studies. This initial, exploratory analysis focuses on rural Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) as evidenced in relevant academic literature. Ideally, this work can serve as the basis for new interdisciplinary research themes on which to base future work. While there has been considerable related work in both fields, we show that there is limited overlap in the literature. If anything, our qualitative examination of the academic literature indicates that Peace Studies typically address transport-related concepts rather than Transport Policy deals with the concept of peace. We identify key crosscutting themes from the literature review and present them as a basis for new crosscutting research into Transport Policy and Peace Studies.
