Abstract:

The interest in the concept of territorial capital has considerably increased in the past few years. The first goal of the study is to give an overview of the possible interpretations and elements of territorial capital. Second, it is aimed at giving a summary of the circumstances that have encouraged the emergence of the territorial capital approach. The third goal is to go beyond the description of current issues by presenting how the concept has been used to verify development issues, while also by highlighting some challenges of empirical investigations on the research topic. Finally, the chances that territorial capital will be used as a strategic planning approach is detailed in addition to a decision support tool. The main result of the study is an own view of the concept of territorial capital which synthesises the up till now state of the research issue and points out its potentials for both scholars and policy-makers.
