The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a new perspective on many existing policy issues, one of them being transnational mobility. The ongoing situation that brought forward many challenges such as closures of borders and reduced urban mobility, has also promoted new questions on how to build a sustainable vision of mobility in Europe.
