Roundtable: Separatism and Independence in a Global Era

4th Monash Roundtable on Separatism and Independence

What prospects are there for independence movements in a global era? Three previous Monash roundtables have analysed the prospects for separatist movements in Scotland, Catalunya and Ukraine. But in a global era, independence and sovereignty can seem both a desirable goal and an ever-receding prospect. The final Monash Roundtable on separatism and independence will focus on calls for statehood in Europe, Asia and across the Islamic world and interrogate the meaning of sovereignty today.
