Secessionist conflicts within the national states of world society

Philipp Rückheim, PhD project

This dissertation project tries to explain secessionist conflicts from a world societal perspective. In this perspective secession and its negation is not only based on political and economic factors within a single national state and its regions (cf. Horowitz 1985, Deiwiks et al. 2012). Nor is it simply a consequence of solidarities with other separatist movements (cf. Beissinger 2009), or a result of changing practices in the mutual recognition of states (cf. Fabry 2008). Instead, this project considers those and other structures of world society and asks for the relation between the emergence of secessionist conflicts and world society.
