Associate tenants Marc Weller and John Dugard prepare a legal opinion on Catalonia’s independence

Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya instructed a commission of four legal experts composed of  Professors Marc Weller, John Dugard, Richard Falk and Ana Stanic to prepare a legal opinion on Catalonia’s independence.   In a recent post, Professor Marc Weller summarises his views on the criteria for statehood, the legality of unilateral declarations of independence and the issue of self-determination.  He discusses how those concepts apply to the current situation in Catalonia.  The legal opinion which is entitled “the question of Catalonia: The Will of the People and Statehood” will be published in the near future.
