About the Book

Right to Self Determination is an individual and collective right to “freely determine… political status and [to] freely pursue… economic, social and cultural development. This right is indisputably a norm of jus cogens and also has the legal status of ‘erga omnes’. In the twentieth century the success or failure of assertion of self-determination was largely dependent on support from one or more of the Allied Powers. It is similarly true even now. Right to self-determination is a contentious term particularly in the developing countries. But, we are witnessing the birth of many new countries or restoration of sovereignty in various part of the world. Southern Sudan is the newest sovereign state (2011). The book is about the self-determination movement in an erstwhile Asiatic Soereign Kingdom-Manipur. It analyses the movement by emphasising the case of Revolutionary People’s Front/People’s Liberation Army (RPF/PLA) and United National Liberation Front/Manipur Peoples’ Army (UNLF/MPA). These organisations are among the oldest, disciplined and most systematic in North East India which still has some respectability among the people as ‘responsible non state entities’. Besides the analysis, the book has a very rich material and empirical source in the form of the memorandum submitted by the RPF to the United Nations. The book will be helpful to the students and scholar of Political Science, International Relation, Human Rights, and Conflict Studies as well as to the general readers alike.
