  1. 1. A Concept in Search of a Principle : An Analysis of the Origins and Development of the Contested Notion of Self-Determination in International Law

    University dissertation from Det juridiske fakultet

    Author : Miriam Mckenna; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Self-determination; Decolonisation; Legal sociology; Bourdieu; Critical legal theory;

    Abstract : Employing a socio-legal approach that draws on Bourdieuian studies of law, this study critically examines self-determination’s status as a norm of international activity by tracing the manner in which it has been articulated and transformed by a number of key actors, the empirical and theoretical tensions accompanying its trajectory, and the negotiations and interactive contestations that lie outside of a functionalist historical approach. This study contends that the law of self-determination is not and has never been a settled matter in either legal or political doctrine, rather that it has been continuously developing conceptually and pragmatically in response to changing geopolitical pressures and legal and political climates.

The argument of the author proceeds in four parts: the Problematique which deals with the 'minority challenge' and the international normative response to that challenge; the Critique, criticizing the basic underlying assumptions of the discourse; the Diagnostics, diagnosing the causative factors behind the normative 'malaise'; and the Resolutique, recapping the best international law of human rights offers for the solution of the 'minority' problem on the one hand, and suggesting new ways of looking on the problem, on the other.
