Territory is a portion of geographical space that coincides with the spatial extent of a government’s jurisdiction. It is the physical container and support of the body politic organized under a governmental structure. It describes the spatial arena of the political system developed within a national state or a part thereof endowed with some autonomy. It also serves to describe the positions in space of the various units participating in any system of international relations. We may, therefore, consider territory as an ideal link between space and politics. Since the territorial distribution of the various forms of political power has greatly shifted through history, it may also serve as a telling expression of relationships between time and politics.
