Abstract

The European sub-continent has historically had relatively large densities of infrastructures, national borders and cross-border flows. This may in part explain the relatively high incidence of transnational infrastructure regimes that have been put in place to regulate infrastructure-supported flows. The chapter discusses the relation of such European transnational infrastructure regimes with those of a more global character. It illustrates this subject matter tentatively for telegraphy; and somewhat more in-depth for road traffic signs. It concludes that European and global transnational infrastructure regimes should not be conceptualized as mutually exclusive, but as fundamentally intertwined levels.
