  2. 2. 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.
