(p.19) 1 Reconfiguring State–Minority Negotiations for Better Outcomes
Managing Diversity through Non-Territorial Autonomy

Sherrill Stroschein

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on collective remedies for minorities, in the form of autonomy as advocated by the Lund Recommendations. It provides first an overview of the territorial and non-territorial autonomy structures proposed in the Lund Recommendations, and then outlines the ways in which majority-minority claims are framed within an institutional framework of territorial autonomy. Next, it contrasts this with the framing of majority-minority disagreements and accommodation in terms of NTA. It demonstrates how NTA removes the zero-sum nature of disputes between majorities and minorities, such that better outcomes become possible for each than under conditions of territorial autonomy. NTA reconfigures disputes between states and minorities, by emphasizing governance as a menu of functional competencies that can take place according to a personal, rather than a territorial, principle. This shift can transform majority-minority disputes to avoid conflict between groups.

Keywords:   autonomy, territorial autonomy, non-territorial autonomy, collective rights, minority rights, Lund Recommendations
