Public infrastructure services in the European Union: challenges for territorial cohesion.

Abstract: ABSTRACT. Public infrastructure services in the European Union: challenges for territorial cohesion, Regional Studies. Territorial cohesion has emerged as an important objective for EuropeanUnion authorities, particularly since the Treaty of Lisbon. One important strand of territorial cohesion is citizen access to affordablepublic infrastructure services. While place of residence may influence use of services, insufficient evidence exists as to whetherresidence may constitute a disadvantage to citizens as regards service use. This paper assesses this by contrasting citizens’ statedand revealed preferences for services in three large countries. Residence frequently conditions expenditure on public infrastructureservices and satisfaction with service accessibility and affordability, disadvantaging residents in some territories, posing challenges forterritorial cohesion.
