Making European Space explores how future visions of Europe's
physical space are being decisively shaped by transnational
politics and power struggles, which are being played out in new
multi-level arenas of governance across the European Union. At
stake are big ideas about mobility and friction, about relations
between core and peripheral regions, and about the future Europe's
cities and countryside. The book builds a critical narrative of the
emergence of a new discourse of Europe as 'monotopia', revealing a
very real project to shape European space in line with visions of
high speed, frictionless mobility, the transgression of borders,
and the creation of city networks. The narrative explores in depth
how the particular ideas of mobility and space which underpin this
discourse are being constructed in policy making, and reflects on
the legitimacy of these policy processes. In particular, it shows
how spatial ideas are becoming embedded in the everyday practices
of the social and political organisation of space, in ways that
make a frictionless Europe seem natural, and part of a common
European territorial identity.
