PhD Student

Anke Kläver has been working as a researcher at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam since 2020, where she used to be a student assistant. As a member of the interdisciplinary EXPERI team, she is doing her PhD on social sustainability in the mobility transition.

Before working at the IASS, Anke Kläver studied Political Economics at Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin. In her master’s thesis, she analysed the inertia of fossil automobility in order to understand their current hegemony. Before that, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Economics at Leuphana University, Lüneburg. Her dissertation, focussing on deliberative methods of evaluating climate adaptation measures in urban spaces, was part of her work at the Institut für ökologische Wirtschaftsforschung (Institute for Ecological Economic Research). Anke Kläver is driven by questions of individual and collective scope for shaping a just social-ecological transition vis-à-vis systems of power, both within as well as beyond her studies.

Being a woman is not a qualification. Just as being a man is not. But the lack of diversity in transport planning hinders the implementation of inclusive mobility. And the lack of accessibility in mobility infrastructure affects women more.

The 10% share of motorised private transport (MIV) calculated in the 2050 scenario (incl. car sharing, taxis, etc.) must have 100% alternative drive systems. This vision is supported at the municipal level in particular with subsidies for charging infrastructure for electric automobility. This long-term scenario illustrates that electric mobility, along with other alternative drive technologies, is seen as a key to achieving a decarbonised and sustainable transport system. Against this background, this article examines how the efforts to attain a 10% rate of motorised private transport in Berlin are currently distributed spatially.
