Transport, Demand Management and Social Inclusion : The Need for Ethnic Perspectives, Hardback Book

Transport, Demand Management and Social Inclusion : The Need for Ethnic Perspectives Hardback

Part of the Transport and Society series

Description

Social inclusion/exclusion has only recently emerged in transport-related discourse.

Despite the apparent absence of a transport policy framework for social inclusion/exclusion, there has been some movement towards a greater understanding of the social aspects of transport in the research sphere.

This book brings together some of this research, focusing on ethnicity - an area that has, so far, had little discussion in the traditional transport literature, thereby contributing to the exploration of the interface between transport and social exclusion.

In particular, it examines the contribution that demand management measures can make to the reduction of the negative impacts of road-based transport.

It questions whether methods such as road user charging and work place parking can be used as instruments for social inclusion, and analyses the potential negative impacts of these schemes if sufficient attention is not paid to ethnicity issues.
