Africa’s Infrastructure Globalities

Rethinking Political Geographies from the Global South

The INFRAGLOB project aims to offer a new understanding of the making of infrastructure globalities. Observing infrastructure sites, we analyze how emerging powers challenge established theories and practice of international relations.

Employing an innovative integrative methodology, the project generates new empirical knowledge on South-South relations over infrastructure projects. At the core is a practice-theoretical account of change involving Africa, China, and other Southern actors. Thereby, we will open new conceptual horizons for the making of multiple globalities.
