Overview

There have been a number of policy attempts at sustainable mobility globally, but are any of these policies really successful? Using an interdisciplinary approach which brings together various theories and methodologies, this book tests each of these policies – or hypotheses, as the author sees them – with detailed empirical investigations. The book concludes by suggesting fourteen theses of sustainable mobility for the EU and a new model for future best practice.
