Does the Common Transport Policy have a Territorial Dimension?

Does the Common Transport Policy have a Territorial Dimension? The Trans-European Network (TEN-T) reinforces the spatial dimension of the European Unification. But it can't be regarded as an expression of a politic empowerment of the European institutions over the national territories. The following analysis stresses the fact that actually a territorialisation trend does exist, but without any further transfer of sovereignty. Its effectiveness lies on the capacity the European institutions have to drive Member-States policies by financial and political incentive. The 'soft territoriality' process as defined by A. Faludi (2013) can also be applied to the European Transport Policy as it is driven by cooperation and not a further supra-national decision making.
