Sharing Mobilities focuses on the emergence of future sustainable and collaborative mobility cultures. At the intersection of physical and virtual capacity and access to people, goods, ideas, and services, this book poses fundamental challenges and opportunities for governance, economy, planning, and identity.
The future of new collaborative forms of consumption and sharing would play a key role in the organization of everyday life and business. Sharing mobilities is more than simply sharing transport, and its diverse impacts on society and the environment demand thorough theory-led sociological research. With an extensive global range, the contributors present radical manifestations of sharing capacities throughout diverse countries, including Germany, Denmark, Japan, and Vietnam. The phenomenon of mobility is highly actual and social as well as politically relevant and urging.
This collection focuses on open questions from the perspective of the mobilities turn while presenting state-of-the-art theory-based articles with applied perspectives. An ideal read for scholars based in social science and the interdisciplinary research on mobility, transports, and sharing economy. Sociologists, geographers, economists, urban governance researchers, and research students would also find this book of interest.
"There is a life after the private car. Digitalisation and the struggle for public space make alternative mobility services as attractive as never before. Sharing Mobilities is the book at the right time. It offers an outstanding and multifaceted insight into the worlds of a phenomenon that is about to change the mobilities as we know them. Sharing Mobilities is a must read for mobility and transport scholars, no matter from which discipline!"
—Dr. Weert Canzler, Berlin Social Science Research Center and Head of Digital Mobility and Social Differentiation research group
