Autonomy has become a code word for an all-purpose means of including sub-state groups in the three major functions that make for the essence of international law: the allocation of competence, the furtherance of common interest, and the maintenance of international peace. From around the world, scholars of law, international law, political science, and related fields discuss the cross-disciplinary appraisal of autonomy, theoretical justifications, cross-border cooperation and international monitoring and implementation, and national and comparative case studies. The case studies consider minorities and self-determination, failed experiences, countries of transition, conflict resolution, and national and regional experiments. Nijhoff is an imprint of Brill.

With a scholarly attention to analytical precision, factual accuracy, and scrupulous objectivity the authors of the present volume – coming from such diverse fields as international law, philosophy, ethics, economics, political science, - detail and explore the protean character of autonomy as both a concept (autonomy's subtypes, autonomy vs. other arrangements for the diffusion of power within heterogeneous societies, new definitions of the concept, etc.) and a practice (the potential of autonomy in the peaceful resolution of ethnic conflicts; comparative case studies, ranging from Greenland to Eritrea, from the Baltic States to South Asia).
