Reviews

Most political and legal examinations of secessionist phenomena in the international order fail to depart from moral justifications for secession. In the theoretical debate about secession, this predominant modus of analysis risks either reducing secession to a moral question or subordinating it to its legal and political dimensions. The volume flips the order in which secession is justified, resulting in different strategies to address the issue at stake. Matteo Bozzon, University of Padua, Italy, Nationalism and Ethnic Politics, (2020) 26(2)
