Envisioning the Sicilian-Maltese archipelago : a Braudelian inspired triple-level analysis of a European cross-border region

Resum: This article seeks to advance the current debate on the 'archipelagic turn' described by island studies. It does so by answering the call for further analysis of island-to-island relations (Stratford et al. , 2011) through applying existing historical methodology with the identification of island movements (Pugh, 2013) between archipelagic islands. Firstly, it proposes the application of an adapted method by combining Fernand Braudel's historical durations (Longue Durée) (1972) with an original attempt of island movements' classification; this is done to conceive a triple-level historical analysis (Long, Medium and Short Term) of islands belonging to archipelagos. Secondly, this article hints at the possibility for island territories inside the European Union to translate archipelagic visions into viable policies by means of European Territorial Cooperation strategies as provided by the European institutional framework. Such arguments are then supported by comparative analysis proving the existence of an archipelago between the islands of Sicily and Malta. In our case study, we both apply the triple-level methodology and suggest that the exploitation of European CrossBorder Cooperation instruments and strategies (such as the Euroregion) could be highly useful for the recovery of a Sicilian-Maltese Archipelago vision.
