Mobility is one of the oldest freedoms claimed by women. Yet for a long time and still today, many women remain largely confined indoors and, here as elsewhere, they are very often under the control of men – even in societies that claim to [...]
Making sense of mobility in a different way, properly capturing women’s experience of mobility, this is an important challenge given how the question of what characterizes women’s mobility is often insufficiently considered. Anne Jarrigeon [...]
In the Paris region, more and more workers have working hours that are no longer explicitly fixed by the employer. Instead, they have what we call flexible working hours. According to theories in transport economics, this greater freedom [...]
British geographer Matt Watson and French sociologist Frédérick De Coninck discuss the role of practices in reducing our carbon footprint. Can taking into account people’s daily constraints more seriously be the key to developing more [...]
Should we advocate for the compact city? Geographer Sébastien Munafò defends the indispensability of this model, particularly for its environmental qualities and the urbanity it fosters. Marc Pearce of the Mobile Lives Forum, on the other [...]
Aviation now accounts for nearly 3% of global CO2 emissions, roughly the same amount as produced by the UK. This trend, driven mainly by frequent, wealthy flyers, is set to continue, and will only lead to an environmental dead-end. What [...]
Although often studied as a homogenous phenomenon, migration practices are actually complex and multifaceted. Recognizing that migration takes many different forms was the underlying premise of this thesis. The purpose of this research was [...]
Within two centuries, the growing speed of travel and the ubiquity enabled by telecommunications have changed everything: lifestyles, spatial planning, migration, pollution, global warming… Mobility is therefore at the heart of the major [...]
The "Macron buses," a low-cost mode of transportation put to the test of sustainability and desirability
Allowing everyone to travel easily while simultaneously limiting CO² emissions: that was the goal of Macron’s 2015 law liberalizing the market of intercity buses. But what has actually come of it? This research will focus on understanding [...]
