    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1980s, discussions on sustainability with social, ecological and economic dimensions started in the Brundtland Commission's report Our Common Future (1987). Today, there are different definitions of social sustainability. The concept is ambiguous in nature, as it can mean different things depending on the situation. This case study aims to create understanding and new knowledge about the concept of social sustainability in relation to transport planning.

    Transport planning is often presented in quantitative and numerical values such as the number of motorways built and time and cost efficiencies. It is the technical dimensions that are in the foreground while the social dimensions are often subordinated in traditional transport discourse (Keivani & Shirazi, 2019:59). The study examines how social sustainability is interpreted in municipal transport planning practices and how it is described in planning documents at the regional level. The study aims to create an understanding of what social sustainability means in regional and municipal transport planning work.

    The study is based on a qualitative method where an interview study has been conducted. This is combined with a qualitative text analysis in the form of a document study of regional policy documents relating to social sustainability and transport planning. The study begins with the state of knowledge regarding social sustainability in a transport planning context. The study's framework highlights research on aspects relating to the concept and its ambiguity, inequality, justice and the distribution of resources to those who need them most. The study shows that regions link social sustainability in transport planning to aspects such as justice, accessibility and equality. But there is also a problem where not enough funds are prioritised for the groups that actually need to be prioritised in the transport system. The study also shows that at municipal level, social sustainability is interpreted in several different ways. In some cases, the concept is interpreted more as a context-dependent concept. In some cases, there is no clear delineation of the concept, which leads to difficulties in understanding how transport planning contributes to social sustainability.
