Karolina Isaksson has more than 20 years of experience in social science-oriented interdisciplinary research on transport policy, transport planning and sustainable mobility. In her research, Karolina focuses particularly on how aspects related to the environment, climate and social justice are integrated in regular transport- and land use planning and decision making situations. Other themes relate to implementation challenges, power relations and (formal and informal) institutional structures, value conflicts and transformative capacity. Karolina has also studied environmental assessments, as well as different types of policy instruments (e.g. congestion charging) and various types of experimental initiatives for climate mitigation in transport and urban planning. A more recent research interest is so called "smart" mobility from a governance perspective.
