By  introducing the new concept of alternative (im)mobilities, this  collection draws attention to a different approach to mobility  practices. In doing so, this ground-breaking volume explores a range of  issues related related to (im)mobilities and the Covid-19 pandemic,  transport and social practices, and media and urban tourism. 

Designed  and organized in a legally or illegally way, alternative (im)mobilities  are examples of those daily practices of displacement of people,  objects, and information, which mobilize a multidisciplinary framework  of urbanization, shedding light on important and long-standing issues of  inequality and the lack of recognition of diversity in economics,  social and culture urban life. This volume opens up a new set of  research questions related to the complex ways in which informal actors  cope with their everyday life experience, regarding dwelling, commuting,  working, caring of vulnerable people, health issues, access to  information, among other mobility practices, besides the lack of  essential – and infrastructural - public services.

This  volume will be of great interest to researchers and scholars in  geography and the social sciences interested in mobilities, transport,  communication, tourism, mobility justice and inequality, public decision  making and health studies.
