(p.137) Chapter 6 Just‐Cause, Administrative Boundaries, and the Politics of Denial
The Ethics of Nationalism

Margaret Moore

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the dominant conception of self‐determination in the decolonization period, and in much international law and practice, according to which self‐determination occurs within existing administrative units and there is civic integration within that territory. This chapter argues that this conception of self‐determination is only appropriate in a limited range of cases.

Keywords:   administrative units, boundaries, civic integration, decolonization, international law, just cause, secession, self‐determination
