Mobility Biographies and Mobility Socialisation

Kiron attended the Mobility Biographies and Mobility Socialisation workshop in Dortmund in February 2014.

The life stages of man

The workshop demonstrated a strong body of research in Austria, Germany and Switzerland which is looking at how travel behaviour evolves over the life course and is affected by social and residential context. In particular, a collaborative project involving universities in Dortmund, Frankfurt and Zurich is using biographical data collected for family members of three generations to obtain unique insights on locational and mobility decisions and their relationship to events over the life course and how these vary between the generations.
