Abstract:

What drives the strategic choices of national self-determination movements? In the two decades that have passed since the end of the Cold War, national self-determination movements have become increasingly prominent fixtures within international relations, spreading beyond the post-colonial world to post-communist Europe and Asia. Several strategies have emerged as the main ways through which these movements pursue their goals, falling roughly into two categories: violent, including insurgencies, guerilla warfare, and other intrastate conflict; and non-violent, including direct negotiation, mediation, and recourse to international law. Given the mixed success of violent tactics coupled with the ambiguity of international law in response to self-determination movements outside of the colonial context, this paper attempts to shed light on why national self-determination movements adopt the strategies that they do, using a comparative case analysis of three contemporary movements: Chechnya, Kosovo, and Timor-Leste. Through a qualitative process trace of these three cases, the paper investigates the strategies implemented by each movement, arguing that movements employing a hybrid strategy incorporating both violent and non-violent tactics will have greater success in advancing their goals than those movements that rely solely on violent or non-violent means.
