Die Zukunft der Eisenbahn - Bahnpolitische Entwicklungen, Wettbewerb und Regulierung

The aim of the conference was to examine current political, regulatory and legal issues of the rail sector as well as in particular the topic of competition, taking into account forthcoming tasks (further liberalization, regulation of rail network access, privatization of Deutsche Bahn AG) and emerging trends in rail transport markets.

Hence, discussion focussed on the main features and perspectives of German and European rail policy, as well as on the duties of the Federal Network Agency regarding regulation of network access. Issues of intra- and intermodal competition, selected legal problems of rail policy, and the capital market view of privatizing Deutsche Bahn AG were also addressed. The conference concluded with a panel on network access and competition in the rail sector.

It can be deduced that views on rail policy guidelines, the reorganization and privatization of Deutsche Bahn AG, the dominant network operator’s potential for discrimination, the powerfulness of the regulatory competences of the Federal Network Agency, and on the extent of intramodal competition are very dissenting. In this context, the conference provided an excellent opportunity to exchange different views about the present situation and the future prospects of the rail system.

The program as well as the presentations (in German language) are available for download.
