The definition of a framework for unpacking transport disadvantage and social inequalities factors is a key element for analysing transport and equity. There are three main aspects related to this relationship: 1) to what extent transportation contributes to inequalities; 2) how can equity and social inclusion perspectives help to explain differences in people’s travel behaviours; and 3) how to better consider equity in transport project evaluation and decision making. This requires the development of alternative methods for measuring equity in transport, including accessibility and capability-based measures, and a new understanding of the benefits of achieving a more equitable provision of transportation benefits.
The main goal of the call is to attract a critical mass of research papers with a deep understanding of notions of equity and to disseminate their methodological skills in addressing equity in various (research) contexts and settings.
This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
