CfP Swiss Mobility Conference, 29-30 June 2017, Lausanne

29 & 30 June 2017 – Lausanne

The Swiss Mobility Conference (SMC) is the result of a collaboration between the chairs of urban sociology (EPFL) and geography of mobilities (UNIL).

  • theoretical debates (and in particular the contributions of social theories to the study of mobilities)
  • methodological innovations (using mobile methods)
  • public policy and decision making in mobility
  • regulation of mobility and its tools
  • the actors and their logics of action
  • the norms and values underlying mobility and social inequality

  • mobility prospective
