Summary, in English

Despite a surge in critical urban studies, the role of transport infrastructure and its material and virtual aspects is still underdeveloped in studies of urban and regional inequalities. Transport infrastructure involves processes of everyday mobility in and to the city, including accessibility to work, services and green areas. Moreover, transport infrastructure guides processes of urban and regional development and planning, where prevailing norms in relation to e.g. automobility continue to pose challenges to environmental sustainability. As such transport mediates power-relations between institutions (private/public), scales and groups. These relations are materialized in terms of spatial segregation and differentiated usages of urban space on the basis of e.g. gender, ethnicity and class.

The aim of this session is to enhance our understanding of urban and regional inequalities by emphasizing the role of different aspects of transports and its associated infrastructure. We welcome contributions on the role of transport in urban and regional inequalities, both in regards to empirical studies and broader theoretical and methodological advances in the field.
