“Europe goes critical” looks at the expansion of infrastructures in Europe both through the interconnection across national borders and through interconnections of different kinds of infrastructures with one another. Those connections created new forms of interdependencies and shared vulnerabilities among nations in Europe. The project inquires how actors of different kinds have interpreted such interdependencies and vulnerabilities, and developed institutions for handling them.
