Regional Infrastructure Systems: The Political Economy of Regional Infrastructure

Regional Infrastructure Systems: The Political Economy of Regional Infrastructure

English | 2019 | ISBN-10: 1786430576 | 240 Pages | PDF | 2.37 MB

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.
This book explores the trend towards the development of regional infrastructure systems within the context of territorial strategy. Regional systems emerge out of states seeking to position themselves within the international system. Colin Turner identifies the diverse processes that are driving regional infrastructures, as well as examining the formal and informal patterns of integration that are shaping developments.

This book is ideal for international political economy and regional development scholars who seek an advanced understanding of current regional infrastructure systems. It will also serve as a vital tool for practitioners who need to understand the implications for policy-making

'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.'
