There is a transit in contemporary literature in Mexico from regional to territorial development as part of a new trend regarding categories such as space, region and territory. Then, there is a need to clarify and give sense to said changes within the context of new orientations and possibilities in the generation of contemporary development policies. The aim of this contribution is to analyze the most important changes in territorial development taking into account the redefinition of territory in Latin America and changes in space conceptions. The main point is to open the process to multiple agents and tendencies that social and cultural trends could generate in multidimensional scales and levels.
Keywords : territory; development policies; co-presence; co-existence.
