This short article discusses the idea of having a balanced approach towards the right to self-determination in light of other recognized principles of international law such as human rights, the ‘territorial integrity of states’, ‘maintenance of colonial boundaries’ (also known as uti possidetis juris) and the principle of ‘maintaining international peace and security’.
