Call for papers: "Transportation Planning for Human Flourishing: Changing Paradigms of Urban Mobility"

For a special issue of the World Review of Science, Technology and Sustainable Development.

Wide-scale environmental degradation, vast social inequalities, and public-health issues suggest that we must rethink the foundations and futures for mobility systems in urban environments. Such challenges require interdisciplinary approaches that can optimise disciplinary strengths to understand such problems and develop workable solutions. In turn, this special issue aims to think through the issues associated with mobility systems and how they affect humankind's ability to flourish. We welcome papers from engineers, planners, scientists, social scientists, philosophers, or any related researchers.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • ICT and transit management
  • Concrete for the future
  • Safe-street technologies
  • Transportation justice
  • Pedestrians and public health
  • Sustainable transit systems
  • Policy and zoning issues
  • Human-centered transit design
  • Transportation democracy
  • Traffic safety
  • Automated vehicles
  • Car-free cities
  • Transit and climate change
  • Bicycling and walkability in the context of multi-modal transportation
  • Right to mobility
