Social Perspectives on Mobility, Hardback Book

Social Perspectives on Mobility Hardback

Edited by Lise Drewes Nielsen, Thyra Uth Thomsen, Henrik Gudmundsson

Part of the Transport and Society series


Globalisation is heavily dependent on physical transport, as people and goods travel over longer distances and with higher frequency.

Movement and mobility have become integrated parts of late modern identity and practice, and a state of flux can be sensed everywhere. Bringing together the latest interdisciplinary theoretical approaches with empirical case studies analysing and appraising innovative policies from Scandinavia, this volume demonstrates that mobility research is a key issue within social enquiry. It addresses three broad themes. Firstly, mobility as a constructed social reality, examining how individuals construct notions of mobility in their everyday life and practice.

Secondly, mobility as spatial co-ordination and transgression, and finally, mobility as a policy theme, where the contributors explore recent developments in transport policy at national and European levels, suggesting ways forward for both research and policy.

In the final section of the book new visions for research into sustainability and mobility are laid out.
