Editorial comment on: ‘New Horizons: Beyond Territorialism’

This is what Zaucha, J., & Pardus, J. (2019). Editorial: Sea dragons. Europa XXI, 36 (https://europa21.igipz.pan.pl/volume/item/36_.html) had to say on my paper (see the previous blog):

Faludi (2019) offers a further, much-needed link between marine and terrestrial space, in a crème de la crème article with very deeply argued thoughts as to how the development of maritime space should inspire its terrestrial counterpart. The approach is an entirely fresh and new one, but Faludi is right. Maritime space teaches us how various limitations may be overcome, and Faludi argues for a functional approach that pays attention to the genuine interactions constituting the space in which we live. His paper raises concerns of importance for spatial planning both maritime and terrestrial. Boundaries have had to be redefined, with the effect being fuller differentiation; while attention now needs to be paid to functional, political and institutional space. The author amasses several arguments against territorialism within precisely-demarcated areas under the control of public authorities, holding that this generates the ‘false consciousness’ which holds that ‘taking back control’ of one’s territory is the solution to today’s problems. On the contrary, Faludi asserts, it is flexible, issue-based and spatially overlapping governance arrangements that may be in a better position to address the complexity characterising modern European space both at sea and land.
