Dit is de redactionele beginselverklaring van het tijdschrift Mobilities.

The journal Mobilities has been launched to address this
emerging attention to many different kinds of mobility, both by those engaged in
practicing and regulating diverse mobilities and by those involved in researching and
understanding present-day and historical mobilities. In this editorial introduction we
outline some emerging empirical trends in diverse interacting systems of mobility and
the related governance and policy concerns around the world. We then use the
examples of airports and urban disasters to explore some of the topics and issues of
relevance within the field. And we suggest a range of new theoretical approaches
being developed across the social sciences to address these complex and emergent
mobility issues.
