Title / Titel The people's constituent power: referendums on sovereignty issues
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung This project seeks to investigate the role of the referendum where contested sovereignty is at stake. It focuses on two dimensions of contested sovereignty: Firstly, issues related to territorial concerns, such as secession; and secondly, functional issues, such as delegation to international/supranational organisations. The aim is to map dynamics across distinct geographical regions and over time to better understand the intersection between direct democracy and contested sovereignty in an age of increasing globalisation and territorial reconfiguration.
