This chapter presents the key principles of the life course approach applied to spatial mobility and discusses the idea that mobility behaviours, whether for work, leisure or social activities, have become less predictable, less stable, more flexible and more individualised due to pronounced changes in advanced societies. These changes are however likely to operate at a different intensity and pace, and with different dynamics and outcomes, across social groups and across socio-spatial contexts. The chapter concludes by critically discussing some deficits of the life course approach and by suggesting some avenues for future research.
