Perceptions of Security & Governance in De-Facto and Partially-recognised states

Publication date:

11th-12th September / UCL School of Public Policy

In most separatist conflicts, where non-state groups fight for independence or greater autonomy within an existing state, the outcome entails no major changes to state boundaries. Yet in some cases, the conflict results in the creation of so-called de facto states. Referred to as breakaway regions by their parent states, most de facto states aspire to be fully independent. While they possess domestic sovereignty, in the sense that they control and administer most or all of the territory they claim, most de facto states do not have full international legitimacy as states. Rather, they become unrecognized or partially recognized states, entities denied international legal sovereignty by all or most members of the existing community of states. Despite this lack of full international recognition, many de facto states have proven to be remarkably enduring (think of Northern Cyprus and Taiwan). In the post-Soviet region, Abkhazia, Nagorno Karabakh, South Ossetia, and Transdniestria have survived as unrecognized or partially recognized states since the early 1990s.
