Sample text

In much the same way as it was shown in the introduction to this volume, the author argues that there are pros and cons to ‘autonomy’. Such ‘pros’ include the flexibility inherent in the concept, its compatibility with territorial integrity, and its value as a means of devolving power to smaller political entities. The ‘cons’ are exemplified by an inherent vagueness that may make meaningful dialogue about the real issues at stake in a conflict more difficult, a tendency to reinforce artificially the norm of territorial integrity, and the possibly of unwarranted expansion of traditional minority rights into the realm of political and economic power.

Regarding international legal context as a fitting instrument for bettering our understanding of these tensions, the author comes up with a taxonomy of situations where collective, as opposed to individual, autonomy, seems more appropriate. He lists four basic options: de jure, reciprocal, variegated, de facto, and humanitarian. More specifically, types of autonomy could include: legal autonomy based on clear legal or constitutional principles; deliberative autonomy granted on a temporary basis pending a final settlement in an area of conflict; variegated autonomy involving a dynamic approach to the development of new forms of self-government; reciprocal autonomy which would allow negotiated settlements with other states; selfdeterminative autonomy which might develop into secession and independence; and humanitarian autonomy arising from international intervention to prevent or control human rights violations.
