Chapter 13: Conclusion: renewal of methods and multidisciplinary curiosity
This book emphasises the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to understand the links between territorial actors, territorial resources and well-being. In Part I, the researchers observe that territorial resources, whatever their nature, force the actors to work towards new standards and to develop an endogenous collective intelligence that takes into account exogenous changes to their territories. The chapters in Part II focus on the relational resources that develop on the territories and contribute to people’s well-being. Beyond the plurality of theoretical positions, all the researchers note that, while social relationships are essential to people’s well-being, their complexities require that analytical frameworks be renewed with interdisciplinary approaches. Based on a wide array of research topics, this book makes it possible to capitalise on the knowledge that has been built up regarding territories and to disseminate it to various audiences and actors in the territory. In this way, the book helps to strengthen the links between actors and researchers and to facilitate the interface between research and current societal issues.
