About the Authors
  • Self-Determination in Disputed Colonial Territories addresses the relationship between self-determination and territorial integrity in some of the most difficult decolonization cases in international law. It investigates historical cases, such as Hong Kong and the French and Portuguese territories in India, as well as cases that remain very much alive today, such as the Western Sahara, Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands and the Chagos Islands. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of colonial territories that are, or have been, the subject of adverse third-party claims, invariably by their neighbouring states. Self-Determination in Disputed Colonial Territories takes a contextual, historical approach to mapping the existing law and will be of interest to international lawyers, as well as scholars of international relations and students of the history of decolonization.

    • Brings clarity to a problematic area within the law of self-determination
    • Maps the existing law of self-determination in disputed colonial territories
    • Analyzes the subject of adverse third-party claims

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is to be commended also for the fact that it sheds light on a series of self-determination claims that are widely ignored in the broader discussion. All in all this is a good read for anybody interested in the law and politics of self-determination.' Peter Hilpold, Europa Ethnica
