Making Infrastructures Global? Design and Governance of Infrastructural Expansion in the Global South
EUCOR Project in Cooperation with Prof. Dr. Kenny Cupers, Urban Studies Department, University of Basel
The project “Making Infrastructures Global” addresses the issue of contemporary infrastructure projects that often look alike, produced as they are by planning agencies that operate across the world in public-private partnerships. Based on three cases of energy infrastructure projects in East Africa, North Africa and Latin America, this project analyses the contested power dynamics triggered by attempts at making infrastructure global. The transregional approach includes the establishment of a cross-border research platform between Basel and Freiburg.
