Recent development in global changes and human mobilities


Armando Montanari, Sapienza Rome University (Italy)


Global changes, climatic, economic, and financial, help to change the mode, the characteristics and dimensions of mobility of people, goods and information. The session is aimed at those who have done research on these issues: those who have addressed the issue of the consequences of global change on mobility  and those who, vice versa,  analysed how mobility is contributing to global change. The concept of human mobility is familiar to the geographical discipline  which has developed it for more than a decade of research and original concepts. In recent years, an intense and persistent economic crisis has changed some established parameters and has provided the inspiration for new research areas. The issues that will be considered are those developed by the IGU Commission Globility which was established in the year 2000. Topics that have been incorporated and further developed by numerous geographical magazines that have devoted attention to the deepening of the theme. This information includes the magazine "Mobilities" arrived at 7 years of publication, and special issues of journals as BELGEO, International Review of Sociology and Migracijske etnicke  to which geographers, sociologists and economists they offered their contribution.
