The politics of innovation in public transport: issues, settings and displacements

The mutual shaping of technology and society, including all kinds of conflicts and power differences, reveals an important political dimension of innovation processes. This thesis aims at understanding and evaluating this dimension. On the base of a literature review five different perspectives on democracy and technology are first distinguished and their similarities, complementarities and differences clarified. Spelling out these differences and similarities provides the blocks for building a theoretical framework with which the limitations of any particular perspective can be transcended.
