I would like to spend some time pinning down some of the legal support for this proposition that the right of self-determination has to include the right to a homeland. The starting point is defining self-determination. What do we mean by self-determination? What do we mean by the right of self-determination? Once we define that then we can think more about how the idea of a homeland fits into that broader concept of self-determination.
