About the Authors
  • The end of the Cold War brought about new secessionist aspirations and the strengthening and re-awakening of existing or dormant separatist claims everywhere. The creation of a new independent entity through the separation of part of the territory and population of an existing State raises serious difficulties as to the role of international law. This book offers a comprehensive study of secession from an international law perspective, focusing on practice and applicable rules of international law. It includes theoretical analyses and a scrutiny of practice throughout the world by eighteen distinguished authors from Western and Eastern Europe, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, North and Latin America, and Asia. Core questions are addressed from different perspectives, and in some cases with divergent views. The reader is also exposed to a far-reaching picture of State practice, including some cases which are rarely mentioned and often neglected in scholarly analysis of secession.

    • Exhaustive analysis of a hotly debated topic in international law
    • Examines the issues of self-determination versus State unity
    • Devotes a section entirely to secessionist practice in each region of the world

    Review of the hardback: 'All in all, Marcelo Kohen, who has written also an informative introductory chapter to this book, is to be congratulated for this well-conceived, thought-provoking collection of essays. Future studies on the law of secession will find in this book an important reference point and a rich source of information.' Peter Hilpold, Austrian Review of International and European Law
