Mobilities and migration

This research group is working on spatial mobility in its broadest terms: participation in traffic, everyday movements, commuting, in- and outmigration, as well as return migration. It focusses on questions of access to and negotiations of mobility, on infrastructures which enable or preclude mobility, and on biographical approaches to mobility and migration decisions. Based on theories of the mobility turn in social sciences, the group is also increasingly turning towards the mobility of goods, concepts, practices, ideas and data. Particular attention lays on the mutual interdependencies of mobilities and power relations, e. g. looking on justice issues, but also on the interplay between mobility and socio-spatial inclusion and exclusion processes, socially embedded norms and gendered social practices.
