Note Current practices in transport policy and the need for change -- The importance of discourse analysis for sustainable mobility policymaking -- Analysis of discourse in Munich's cycling and electric mobility promotion -- Assessment of competing approaches and reconciling discourses in policymaking
Chelsea Tschoerner-Budde analyzes discourse in two cases of sustainable mobility policymaking in Munich: cycling promotion and electric mobility promotion. Both cases revealed that the formation and integration of a new, socially driven discourse on everyday mobility was necessary for policy change. Historically, transport policy has been structured to improve flow and manage transport systems. The new 'everyday mobility cultures' approach presents a potential framework for improving policymaking and fostering a transition in the transport sector.
