(p.27) 3 International Law and Self-Determination
Self-Determination and Secession in International Law

Joshua Castellino

Oxford University Press

This chapter is divided into three parts and is focused on detailing, evaluating, and discussing the entitlement to self-determination of three recognizable groups within international society, viz. peoples, indigenous peoples, and minorities. The first part offers a hypothesis of the ‘right’ of self-determination in international law, emphasizing its purposes, principles, and the applicable legal regime; the second part scrutinizes the definitions and claims of ‘peoples’, ‘indigenous peoples’, and ‘minorities’ against the applicable legal regime; and the third and final part seeks to reflect the experiences and issues that are raised in the context of self-determination for each of these groups.

Keywords:   Peoples, indigenous peoples, self-determination, territory, entitlements
