The port reform processes in two neighbouring East African countries, Kenya and Tanzania is the theme of PortEconomics member Michael Dooms along with Sheila Farrell (Imperial College, London, United Kingdom) new port study.
The port study provides historical analysis of port reforms in Kenya and Tanzania and is accompanied by a forward-looking assessment of whether existing institutions will allow these African ports to evolve in the same direction as North European ports. The authors examine whether or not Kenya and Tanzania ports are adapting governance practices that will move them towards these ends, and how they deal with the tension between public and private sector objectives.
The study is included in a special volume of the scholarly journal Research in Transportation Business and Management (RTBM) on Port governance and reforms.
