Territoriality as a Global Concept

Stanford M. Lyman;
Open Access
Published: 01 Jan 1994 Journal: Revija za sociologiju, volume 25, issue 3-4 (issn: 0350-154X, eissn: 1846-7954, Copyright policy )
Publisher: Croatian Sociological Association
Country: Croatia

The terraqueous globe is made up of spaces on which peoples, ethnic groups, races, and nations have carved out territories over which they form themselves into sovereign bodies politic, on which they can interact, through and across which they can pass with ease or difficulty, at the borders of which they can erect barriers or open the area to migrants and trade. Hence, I propose territoriality as the successor concept to social distance and as both a basic concept and a fundamental process in all of human life.

Kopneni i vodeni svijet sačinjen je od prostora na kojima su akteri, etničke skupine, rase i nacije izgradili teritorije te se ondje uspostavili kao suverena politička tijela. Teritoriji su prostori interakcije, uspješnog ili manje uspješnog igranja uloga — prostori na čijim se granicama podižu prepreke ili otvaraju vrata migrantima i trgovini. Autor, stoga, predlaže koncepciju teritorijalnosti kao nasljednicu pojma socijalna distanca te kao temeljnu kategoriju i, ujedno, fundamentalni proces društvenog života.
