Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Peoples and International law: How Nationalism and Self-Determination Shape a Contemporary Law of Nations contains the table of contents, list of abbreviations, table of cases, table of treaties and the introduction section. The book first gives the reader an in-depth account of the law of self-determination. It next aims digging down to the ideas and historical context which underlie the law. The reader can find details on how self-determination was interpreted in, say, article 1(2) of the Human Rights Covenants or by the Canadian Supreme Court in Re. Secession of Quebec. The book further takes a critical look of the law of self-determination. It finally looks at the right of peoples, its rhetoric and application, and the assumptions behind it to develop a theory that explains its role in international law.

Keywords: Canadian supreme court; Human Rights Covenants; international law; nationalism; self-determination
