Analysing partition: definition, classification and explanation
|Title:||Analysing partition: definition, classification and explanation||Authors:||O'Leary, Brendan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/2175||Date:||2006||Abstract:||Political partitions should be carefully distinguished from secessions, decolonisations and disengagements—though they may accompany these phenomena. Political partitions involve a fresh cut, an at least partially novel border, ripped through at least one national community’s homeland. Partitions of national and multinational polities may be distinguished, as may external and internal partitions. External partitions have been rarer than suggested in conventional accounts, and explanations of their occurrence are evaluated.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
