MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mobile Desires is an interesting effort to describe, examine and unsettle the structures and relations of power that mobilise and demobilise individuals and populations. ... this reading will be - for all who undertake it - a strong stimulus to scrutinise mobility oppression and to create new ways to destabilise it, with uncertain results, but continuing attempts." (Bele n Rojas Silva, Angelaki, Vol. 22 (2), May, 2017)

"The breadth of the chapters provides an excellent opportunity for readers to be pushed beyond the boundaries that exist even in the fluid world of mobility studies ... . The edited volume taken as a whole is inspiring. Those interested in mobility studies and in the friction between the mobility and desires of disparate groups of citizens will find that it challenges some of the familiar gendered and racialized critiques offering a more critical feminist/queer appraisal of mobility justice." (Liesl Gambold, International Feminist Journal of Politics, Vol. 19 (1), February, 2017)
