The Territorial Dimension of Self‐Determination

The Territorial Dimension of Self‐Determination

(p.134) 7 The Territorial Dimension of Self‐Determination
National Self-Determination and Secession

Margaret Moore

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines one of the most serious problems with the principle of self‐determination, viz., that this concept does not tell us who the peoples are that are entitled to self‐determination or the jurisdictional unit that they are entitled. It examines indigenous, historical, superior culture, and occupancy arguments for rights to a particular territory and suggests normative principles for thinking about jurisdictional units.

Keywords:   administrative boundaries, culture, history, jurisdiction, national self‐determination, occupancy, territorial rights, territorial units
