Abstract:

The author’s interest in this topic and its general relevance are provoked by the insufficient research in the field of spatial planning in the Balkan region – especially concerning the period after the political changes that started in the 90s. To widen the scope of the study, we concentrate on four countries that differ in terms of socio-economic parameters, European integration stage, trends in the conceptual evolution of their spatial planning systems, etc. The main idea of this article is to offer a theoretical and methodological points for empirical research designed to compare the different notions of territory/space, to scrutinize the diverse planning cultures, and to summarize the guiding principles set in the legislative frameworks and main planning documents.

Keywords:
