The recent revival of secessionist movements in Europe and elsewhere has definitely given new lifeblood to a long-standing debate, gathering the attention of scholars from all around the world. The workshop aims to explore these phenomena from an interdisciplinary perspective by inviting scholars with different background (sociologists, political scientists, philosophers, lawyers).

The event is one co-organized by STALS and the European Univeristy Institute – which will host the event in the beautiful location of Villa Schifanoia – and is one of the events organized to celebrate the 10th aniversary of the STALS project.
