This volume, incorporating the work of scholars from various parts of the globe, taps the wisdom of the Westphalian (and post-Westphalian) world on the use of federalism and secession as tools for managing regional conflict.

The conversation has scarcely been more important than it is right now, especially in light of recent events in Catalonia, Scotland, Quebec, and the Sudan - all unique political contexts raising similar questions about how best to balance competing claims for autonomy, interdependence, political voice, and exit.

Exploring how various nations have encountered like conflicts, some more and some less successfully, promises to broaden the perspectives of scholars, government officials, and citizens struggling to resolve sovereignty conflicts with full appreciation for the underlying principles they represent.
