Abstract:

The paper demonstrates, through a review of the literature, that territorial behavior is concerned with the human hierarchy of needs and the social fabric within the urban form. Territorial behavior affects human needs significantly through its impact on personal identity, which strongly motivates people to fulfil higher levels of needs. The fulfillment of such needs not only help people to lead stable lives and enhances their belonging and attachment to the community, but also prevents many antisocial, undesirable behaviors and negative attitudes towards urban spaces. Moreover, the paper tackles the different types of territory and their effect on people’s desire to control, personalize and be responsible for their urban spaces. Further, an analysis of territory through historical review with relation to types of human territories leads to the understanding and defining of people and authorities’ role in controlling and expressing territorial behavior. Finally, the paper suggests guidelines concerning territorial boundaries, claims and rights within urban spaces which reveals promising results in the security and stability of communities.
