Constitutional Geography and Geopolitics
Professor Günter Frankenberg
(Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main – Institute for Public Law)
Partition comes neither naturally nor happens by accident. It results from bitter controversy. War, civil war and occupation often precede territorial separation. Whereas liberation struggles are likely to inspire secession on the part of separatist movements, political division may be the upshot of strategic plans devised by occupying powers and colonial regimes and is liable to be charted in geographical and geopolitical terms. I will discuss models of constitutional geography and constitutional narratives covering or denying partition.
