Chapter 18 offers a synopsis of the preceding chapters. In the light of chapters 2 to 17, the editor sums up and comments on the advantages, shortcomings, and potential pitfalls of the Extra- and Intra-territorial Forces Model and thus evaluates its suitability for both postcolonial and non-postcolonial contexts. The synopsis provides an extended list of extra- and intra-territorial forces which can be identified in the case studies discussed (for a first list of potential forces, see Buschfeld and Kautzsch 2017). It also meets the critical voices raised in some of the contributions and offers some alternations and modifications to the original conception of the model, viz. the revised Extra- and Intra-territorial Forces Model.

Keywords:   extra- and intra-territorial forces, synopsis, advantages, shortcomings, revised Extra- and Intra-territorial Forces Model, fuzzy forces, fuzzy boundaries
