Work on European spatial planning has led me to criticise what I call territorialism.
It conceives of the world in terms of a seamless cover of sovereign states
looking after its territory each as if it were its property. In the European Union
though, states are enveloped by a superstructure. Does this mean that there is a
European territory and, if so, how does it relate to the territories of its Member
States? The issue becomes manifest in such efforts, as there have been undertaken,
to arrive at a form of European spatial planning.
