Territorial cohesion and the European model of society

edited by Andreas Faludi

Published by Lincoln institute of land policy, 2007 | ISBN 978-1-55844-1

The publication of this volume offers an occasion to revisit European Spatial Planning (2002), which sought to familiarize American planners with the European approach to transnational planning.
In this new book, based on a conference in Vienna in June 2005, the authors examine territorial cohesion as a successor concept to the European Spatial Development Perspective.
Fundamental ideas about Europe and its distinct "model of society" lie behind the concept of territorial cohesion, which can be understood as a goal of spatial equity that tends to favor development-in-place over selective migration to locations of greater opportunity.
This approach contrasts with an American social model that views the equity principle behind terrritorial cohesion to be diametrically opposed to the efficiency principle based on free mobility of labor.
