The findings of the empirical mixed-method study on car use help to understand mobility practices and their underlying logic.The central component is a user typology based on a quantitative survey and qualitative interviews. The study aims to present an empirical description of mobility practices and the guiding logic of different mobility types in Berlin. The findings offer starting points for user-specific measuress to encourage people to use new mobility concepts instead of their car.
There has been a proliferation of contemporary art biennials in the past 20 years, especially in cities outside of North America and Europe. This paper considers the ways that the biennial thwarts the possibility of authentic representation. The research puts the biennials in Taipei and Dakar into relational comparison, looking at the ways cultural identity is made, instrumentalized, and strategically employed.
La riduzione del rischio, nelle aree poste in prossimità di pareti rocciose, mediante gestione dei sistemi di monitoraggio con finalità d'allerta evidenzia potenzialità, ma anche numerose criticità e limiti. L'articolo prende in esame due frane, originatesi da pareti rocciose, avvenute in prossimità di aree abitate nelle Alpi. Si analizzano costi ed efficacia sia delle opere di difesa sia dei sistemi di monitoraggio con funzione di early warning anche in relazione a soglie d'allerta e scenari.
The conditions of social work in prisons are seldomly researched. In particular, we focus on its spatial conditions as it works with and for people who are confined, but it is also carried out under conditions of confinement. Based on insights from two prisons in Switzerland we analyse these conditions by focusing on spaces, bodies and emotions. The materiality of the prison translates into the prison logics and enforces them in complex ways on the bodies of prisoners as well as social workers.
Considering time in climate justice research and practice deepens understanding of climate injustices to vulnerable people and of timely adaptation and resilience strategies. This is what the paper exemplifies by drawing on empirical results of farming communities in India and fishing communities in Norway. It suggests that qualitative scenarios based on the different facets of time as perceived by local groups are a valuable complement to existing quantifications of climate change projections.
