“All transport problems are essentially mathematical”: The uneven resonance of academic transport and mobility knowledge in Brussels

This article uses frame resonance in circuits of knowledge to explore the effect that transport and mobility academic knowledge has on contemporary policy. A literature review identifies three academic approaches to urban transport and mobility: neoclassical, which focuses on the car as primary transport; sustainable, which focuses on mixed use; and political economic, which considers underlying social, political, economic, and cultural structures. Using Brussels as a case study, the authors examine the three academic approaches and their influence on Brussels mobility policy. It is determined that Brussels appears to be dominated by neoclassical and sustainable policy positions.
