A chapter coauthored by Diane Davis (professor of urbanism and development) and Onesimo Flores Dewey (lecturer and senior researcher) was named an Outstanding Author Contribution in the 2014 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence. “How to Defeat an Urban Megaproject. Lessons from Mexico City Airport Controversy,” which appeared in Research in Urban Sociology last year, was called “one of the most impressive pieces of work the team has seen throughout 2013” by the Emerald Group Publishing Editors.
Davis and Flores Dewey are director and senior researcher for Transforming Urban Transport – The Role of Political Leadership, a project hosted by the GSD. Sponsored by Volvo's Research and Educational Foundations, TUT advances the knowledge of how, when, and where political leadership has been critical to the successful implementation of path-breaking transportation policies.
