Chapter 20: Exploring the links between mobility capital and human flourishing in Buenos Aires

Florencia Rodriguez Touron


Florencia Rodriguez Touron examines the concept of motility and the linkage to eudaimonic well-being, using a case study of Buenos Aires. Telephone surveys and interviews are used to assess motility (using factors such as transport availability, access to activities, personal safety and travel cost) and well-being is hence (in terms of human flourishment), across different communes in the city. The findings reveal that increases in the motility scale are significantly associated with increases in well-being.
