Something rotten in the state of Czechia?

The Czech Republic has been in the news recently because of its politicians' somewhat quick Celtic campaign to rebrand the country to the world as ‘Czechia’. But among political scientists and businesspeople the country's name has long suffered worst damage than this.

What the people of Nagorno-Karabakh think about the future of their homeland

The disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakah has been caught in a tug-of-war between Armenia and Azerbaijan for decades. Internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, it’s home to an estimated 120,000 people, primarily ethnic Armenians, who want to separate from Azerbaijan. It’s been a de facto independent state since a fragile ceasefire was brokered in 1994, and low-level violence has flared up every spring ever since.

Migration, the lightning rod of the EU referendum

The EU-Turkey deal should have no role in the Brexit debate, yet it brings the crucial question of the European Union and migration into focus at an inopportune time.

Future public transport journey 2030

21 March 2013

Recent output from an EU research study - an animation of the future public transport journey 2030.


The Bartlett School of Planning launched an animated view of the potential 'seamless public transport journey in 2030', as part of the SYNAPTIC project (Synergy of New Advanced Public Transport Solutions Improving Connectivity in North-West Europe), funded by EU INTERREG IVB.

Focused on the needs of the traveller, SYNAPTIC seeks to improve the overall door-to-door journey so that journeys become coordinated, integrated and easy to use, with points of friction between different stages removed or reduced.

The project brings together 52 partner organisations from 8 countries in North West Europe.
