  1. 1. Transport systems meeting long-term climate targets : A backcasting approach

    Author : Jonas Åkerman; Mattias Höjer; Glenn Lyons; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Other social sciences; Övrig samhällsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Future transport systems consistent with long-term climate targets are examined in this thesis, using a systems perspective covering the entire transport system. Aviation is given particular attention, as expansion of this mode is difficult to reconcile with climate targets. READ MORE

  2. 2. Extensions in Flux : An Essay on Vagueness and Context Sensitivity

    Author : Jonas Åkerman; Peter Pagin; Diana Raffman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; vagueness; context sensitivity; contextualism; weak tolerance; sorites paradox; forced march; equivocation; indexicals; Fara; Raffman; Shapiro; Soames; Theoretical philosophy; Teoretisk filosofi; Theoretical Philosophy; teoretisk filosofi;

    Abstract : The extensions of vague predicates like ‘is bald’, ‘is tall’, and ‘is a heap’ apparently lack sharp boundaries, and this makes such predicates susceptible to soritical reasoning, i.e. reasoning that leads to some version of the notorious sorites paradox. READ MORE

  3. 3. Enabling socio-technical transitions – electric vehicles and high voltage electricity grids as focal points of low emission futures

    Author : Martin Albrecht; Åsa Svenfelt; Göran Finnveden; Jonas Åkerman; Anna Kramers; Måns Nilsson; Anna Bergek; KTH; []

    Abstract : Today humankind is facing numerous sustainability challenges that require us to question CO2 intensive practices like those present in the transport and energy sector. To meet those challenges, many countries have adopted ambitious climate targets. Achieving such targets requires an understanding of the wider socio-technical context of transitions. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Shift in Urban Mobility and Parking? : Exploring Policies in Relation to Practices

    Author : Fredrik Johansson; Greger Henriksson; Jonas Åkerman; Pelle Envall; Greg Marsden; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Parking; mobility services; flexible parking requirements; sustainable mobility paradigm; Strategier för hållbar utveckling; Strategies for sustainable development;

    Abstract : The transport sector is associated with many environmental challenges, including carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Research indicate that CO2 emissions should decrease by at least 50 % per decade in order to be in line with the Paris Agreement, and the transport sector is highlighted as a particularly challenging sector.
