High Mobility in Europe: Work and Personal Life

Gil Viry (Editor), Vincent Kaufmann (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Travelling intensively to and for work helps – but also challenges – people to find ways of balancing work and personal life. Drawing on an extensive European longitudinal study, High Mobility in Europe explores the diversity and ambivalence of mobility situations. Using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, this book outlines patterns of high mobility over the life course and analyses the intersecting implications for family and career development, place attachment and social inequality. The contributors to this volume provide an important and timely contribution to the debate about the growing importance of mobility in contemporary societies.
