The multicontinentality between geography, economy and culture

Antonio Mora Guanche       The purpose of this article is to introduce the geopolitical concept of “multicontinentality” in the context of international relations between countries and regions as well as to determine its possible application utility.    Concept of multicontinentality    We could define multicontinentality as the relationship of a country or region with a given continent, be it a geographical or cultural relationship.    The geographical–type relationship is given by the location of the country or region in a given continent. Likewise, the cultural relationship corresponds to the historical links maintained between the multicontinental country or region and other continents. These links can be given by various forms of relationship, such as economic or commercial exchanges, integration between populations or cultural relations.    Examples of multicontinentality   An example of the application of the concept of multicontinentality is the case of the Canary Islands, a Spanish region located geographically on the African continent and which fundamentally presents a European culture to which cultural links with the American continent are added.  Therefore, we can affirm that the Canary Islands presents a Tricontinentality relationship by being linked to three continents: Europe, America and Africa.  Likewise, we can point out the case of Chile as an example of tri-continentality from the geographical point of view since Chile is located on three continents, America, Antarctica and Oceania.  Thus, Chile has…
