The Right to be an Independent State? (the Forum)

8 March 2016, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Recent years have seen numerous calls for independence: in Kosovo, South Sudan, Scotland, Catalonia, and in Eastern parts of Ukraine. Are all declarations of independence created equal, or are some more legitimate than others? What gives a territory the right to become an independent country, and under what conditions can a state prevent it from doing so?

Cara Nine, Lecturer in Philosophy (University College Cork)
Helena Terradas, European Free Alliance advisor on constitutional affairs

Chair
Peter Dennis, Fellow, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method (LSE) and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow
