This chapter summarizes the book's argument. It has argued that legitimate states have a moral right to self-determination and that this right is inherently collective to “groups” or “societies”, irreducible to the individual rights of the people who constitute them. This right to self-determination is a full-blown right to sovereignty and is also a moral right, the book has contended.

Keywords:   moral right, self-determination, groups, individual, sovereignty
