The influence of work-related travel on highly mobile people’s practices and representations of space
jeudi 30 novembre 2017
In recent decades, globalization and the development of high-speed transport have given rise to a new type of travel : short-term business travel. Goods trade, knowledge and know-how often function on an international scale, and many people are now obliged to make long-distance work-related trips. The reasons for these trips vary, but their duration is usually short, ranging from a day to a week. Some jobs require frequent business travel, from one to several times a month. We call the individuals concerned “highly mobile” or “hypermobile”.
