Despite a surge of multidisciplinary interest in transition studies on low-carbon
mobilities, there has been little evaluation of the current state of the field,
and the contributions of different approaches such as the multi-level perspective
(MLP), theories of practice, or the new mobilities paradigm. As a step in
this direction, this contribution brings together scholars representing different
theoretical perspectives and disciplinary fields in order to discuss processes
and uneven geographies of mobility transitions as they are currently theorized.
First, we reflect upon the role of geographers and other social scientists in envisioning,
enabling, and criticizing mobility transitions. Second, we discuss how
different theoretical approaches can develop mobility transitions scholarship.
Finally, we highlight emerging issues in mobility transitions research.
