Insights on Mobility Cultures & Policies

Relevant humanists and social scientists are nowadays reflecting on how emerging technologies are changing mobility cultures and social values, and how values affect mobility practices and policies. The Coronavirus pandemic makes the world a living lab to further develop these reflections. Policies restraining or prohibiting individual freedom to move and surveying people’s daily lives are applied to protect social health (a prevailing citizen’s right). These policies cause huge economic costs on many sectors and companies (e.g. tourism) but also benefits to few others (e.g. telecommunications, e-commerce).

Policies restraining physical mobility create social distress and psychological suffering to many; however it is imperative to apply these policies to save millions of lives worldwide. Furthermore, new and more disruptive technologies will create ethical dilemmas in the near future, for example to what extent we humans can rely on intelligent machines to make better decisions for ourselves and others. The language and everyday categories we presently use (e.g. public interest/common good, individual/social, private/public, utility/meaning, behaviour/value, science/art, data/knowledge, cost/benefit, consumer/producer, local/global…), need to be redefined if we want to be able to imagine new and better futures for all. Many people, from artists to scientists and politicians, have already provided inspiring thoughts on these issues.
