2019 (English)In: Integrating Gender into Transport Planning: From One to Many Tracks / [ed] Christina Lindkvist Scholten & Tanja Joelsson, Basingstoke & New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, p. 1-22Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Transport and mobility are integrated everyday activities in people’s lives. Transport research and planning has been characterized by utilitarian, rationalistic and quantitative epistemologies. Also, for long time transport planning research has been gender coded as masculine. In this collection we show the importance of combining methodologies and that ‘numbers’ is useful when addressing issues of power and gender equality but also that qualitative and critical epistemologies bring important and necessary knowledge to the transport planning research field. This collection is a contribution to the research field of transport planning, representing a plurality of epistemologies – but with one important common denominator: transport planning as inheritably political practice and that transport planning research has to acknowledge the diversity of social positions when planning for equity and accessibility.
