Theorizing Mobility Transitions Temenos, C.; Nikolaeva, A.A.; Schwanen, T.; Cresswell, T.; Sengers, F.; Watson, M.; Sheller, M. Abstract: 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 paper brings together

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.
