National Self‐determination and Secession brings together a number of original essays by leading figures in the field on the ethics of secession. It examines such questions as: When is secession justified? What is a people and what gives them a right to secede? Is national self‐determination compatible with liberal and democratic principles? It offers fresh insight into debates about contested territory, the problem of minorities, and the place of secession in resolving national conflicts.
