As a system of law founded upon the issue of territorial control, ascertaining and determining which entities are entitled to the privileges of statehood continues to be one of the most difficult and complex issues. Moreover, although the process of decolonisation is almost complete, the principle of self-determination has raised new challenges for the metropolitan territories of established states, including the extent to which internal self-determination guarantees additional rights for minority and other groups.

This volume brings together such debates to reflect further on the current state of international law regarding these fundamental issues.
