(p.1) Introduction
Minority Accommodation through Territorial and Non-Territorial Autonomy

Tove H. Malloy

Oxford University Press

The Introduction positions the theme of the book in the academic debate on autonomy and questions why there is a gap between theory and practice in the understanding of autonomy. While in theory autonomy is seen as controversial and difficult to apply, in reality governments have adopted forms of autonomy arrangements across the globe, albeit at times reluctantly. The book suggests that the hegemonic position of territory in both theory and in international relations is a main reason for this ambivalent relationship to autonomy. It introduces therefore the triadic nexus of minority-territory-autonomy as analytical categories that need to be explained in order to understand the complexity of autonomy. Addressing each component of the nexus in turn, the book argues that inter-dependence between these needs to be examined in more detail in the literature and research.

Keywords:   autonomy, theory, practice, territory, international relations, triadic nexus, inter-dependence
