Special Issue on: "Transportation Planning for Human Flourishing: Changing Paradigms of Urban Mobility"

Guest Editors:
Dr. Shane Epting and Dr. Alexander Paz-Cruz, University of Nevada, USA

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.
