Summary

The final chapter concludes the research project, offers a summary of the four main findings and the diagnosis of deterritorialisation without reterritorialisation. The chapter then shows how this new legal geography can be applied in practice and outlines avenues for further research. The chapter argues territories can at the same time be understood as more complex and dynamic than the discipline of international law has hitherto imagined them to be, and, at the same time, as devastatingly simple if territory is instead understood as constituted by practices of control performed in relation to specific spaces, people, and activities.
