Virtual Panel Discussion-ஈழத்தமிழரின் சுயநிர்ணய உரிமை

Eelam Tamil’s Right to Self- Determination – ஈழத்தமிழரின் சுயநிர்ணய உரிமை

Remedial secession, a process whereby a people can declare independence, is a nebulous concept in international law and there are many questions surrounding its practice.
When can a people declare independence?
What is remedial secession and when may it apply?

What lessons can Palestine, East Timor and Western Sahara teach us about the Eelam Tamils crisis?
Bringing together leading scholars and practitioners of international law, the panel will examine issues of external self-determination and remedial secession in the context of the Eelam Tamil’s conflict. The goal would be to place the Eelam Tamils issue in comparative perspective and survey the state of international law and practice at present on cases of remedial secession.

Zoom Meeting, panel discussion – Saturday February 12, 2022, Time: 10:00 AM, US & Canada (EST)
