Regional Infrastructure Systems

The Political Economy of Regional Infrastructure

Colin Turner, Institute for Infrastructure, Heriot-Watt University, UK

As the international economy globalises, there is a need for national infrastructure systems to adapt to form a global infrastructure system. This network of networks aids mobility between national systems as a means of supporting their territorial needs and preferences. This reflects a strategic approach to state infrastructuring as nations seek to utilise these physical systems to support and enhance their territoriality. Providing a thorough examination through the lens of economic infrastructure, the book addresses the forces of integration and fragmentation in global networks.

‘Colin Turner has produced a fascinating, timely and comprehensive study on the development of regional and international infrastructures. Infrastructure will continue to play a vital role in shaping our ever inter-connected world. This book combines excellent theoretical depth with rich empirics on the subject. It is a vital read for anyone interested in understanding the future paths of both regionalism and globalisation.’
– Christopher M. Dent, University of Leeds, UK
