2019 RGS Conference, 27-30 August, London

Thematic session proposal

*** Long-distance travel and transport justice ***

Convenors: Frédéric DOBRUSZKES (Brussels Free University), Chia-Lin CHEN 
(University of Liverpool in London), Amparo MOYANO (University of 
Castilla-La Mancha) and Francesca PAGLIARA, University of Naples 
Federico II)

There is a clear trend that in the era of widespread information and 
communication technological (ICT) development and large-scale transport 
investment, places distant apart are increasingly inter-related and 
connected. Therefore, people have involved more and more long-distance 
travel which is defined here beyond intra-metropolitan areas for at 
least a few hundred kilometres . Although the rise of a networked 
society and long-distance travel could enhance economic growth and 
competitiveness, social challenges have been largely neglected. Academic 
knowledge and policy of transport and mobility has mostly been 
investigated through the lens of so-called neo-classical and sustainable 
mobility paradigms.
While these approaches diverge in many ways, they commonly depoliticise 
debates and ignore the role of social divides in mobility patterns and 
the fact that transport policies are not neutral in social terms (W. 
Kębłowski and D. Bassens, 2018). The emerging theme of transport 
justice  (K. Martens, 2017) is promising in addressing the lack of 
critical approaches to transport and mobility studies, but has been 
mostly focused on urban transport (ibid.). Therefore, this session is 
expected to expand the concept of transport justice toward long-distance 
travel and explore associated issues and policy implications via various 
transport modes and services, including (but not restricted to) 
aviation, high-speed rail and coach services.

Topics could include:
- How can long-distance travel and transport justice be conceptualised?
- Do long-distance travellers belong to specific social groups?
- How much transport justice explain modal split on long-distance 
mobilities?
- What are the factors of social exclusion in long-distance travel markets?
- How much yield management and dynamic pricing shape the spatial 
patterns of long-distance mobilities?
- Have low-cost airlines really helped to democratise aviation?
- Have low-cost high-speed rail (such as Ouigo and Izy) made high-speed 
rail more open to all social groups?
- What policies to improve long-distance transport justice?

Submission (by the 31st of January 2019):
