About the Authors
  • This is the first book to provide a thorough international legal account of the European micro-states. Jorri Duursma examines notions of self-determination and statehood in the context of international law, and provides solutions for problems of secession. Drawing on many unpublished documents, she tackles the important questions of what constitutes a people with a right to self-determination, and who is allowed to secede from a state, developing a novel approach to statehood and fragmentation.

    • Original approach to the fragmentation of states by combining study of self-determination with analysis of legal position of micro-states
    • First book on international and legal relations of the European micro-states
    • Based on many unpublished documents in six languages and on research in many parts of Europe
