The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will host a special public working dinner and panel on "Today: From Brexit to Catalonia to the Crimea" in cooperation with the Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the United Nations in New York, on Thursday, December 6 at 6:00 pm in 019 Bendheim Hall. 


What relevance does self-determination have for us in 2018? Across the world, many stateless nations, indigenous peoples, and separatist groups continue to make claims to secession, independence, and self-determination, resulting in political conflicts that call into question the existence of states. In this panel discussion, scholars will lay out today's questions and challenges for self-determination, and discuss where the international system falls short in addressing such situations. To attend the event, please RSVP to Angella Sandford.
