About this book

Travelling intensively to and for work helps but also challenges people to find ways of balancing work and personal life. Drawing on a large European longitudinal study, Mobile Europe explores the diversity and ambivalence of mobility situations and the implications for family and career development.

Reviews

“The various quantitative and qualitative methods – including their limitations – are outlined in detail in a separate chapter on the overall methodological framework. Indeed, readers may find it surprising how successfully data from a two-wave panel survey, life-story interviews and photo elicitation exercises complement each other both across and within chapters. This coherence is what gives the volume its main strength and argumentative authority. … the book evidences that thorough empirical research on mobility practices is both desirable and possible.” (Chris Moreh, JCMS Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (6), 2016)
