Beyond the Front Gate: Universal Mobilities and the Travel Chain

  • Mobility and mobilities are terms with multiple meanings across different disciplinary divides. This keynote presentation will examine the concepts of universal design and mobilities across the travel chain. The presentation will be founded in the articles of the United Nations (2006) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and examine the implications of “universal mobilities” across personal, local, regional, national and international travel. In doing so the presentation examines the intersections of disability, support needs, life-cycle and lifespan. The presentation will draw on examples that highlight independent, dignified and equitable approaches to designing local, regional, national and international movements of people encompassed by the UN Convention.
