In a realist world, states have historically given top priority to the conquest of territory in order to advance their economic, security, and other interests (Gilpin 1981: 23). 4 The value of territory can be divided into tangible and intangible dimensions (Newman 1999) or intrinsic and relational aspects (Goertz and Diehl 1992). This category is most, if not exclusively, relevant for private goods. Knowledge of the types and nature of goods gives us a first cut into understanding the type of problems that actors face and their incentives.
