Product Description


this is a novel work on an important topic with a wealth of empirical evidence. It is accessible to both novices and experts and addresses a wide breadth of the scholarly literatures. (Bridget Coggins, Diplomacy & Statecraft)

Ker-Lindsayâs book should be credited for both its conceptual novelty and the clarity of its analytical structure. Ker-Lindsay successfully synthesises the politics of counter-recognition into three elements: initial attempts to isolate seceding territories from international communities (isolation), careful review of risks involved in isolation tactics (risk review) and target setting to maximise the benefit from the diplomatic endgame (target setting). (Tom Hashimoto, Europe Asia Studies)

About the Author

James Ker-Lindsay's research focuses on issues relating to conflict, peace, and security in the Western Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean. He is Eurobank EFG Senior Research Fellow on the Politics of South East Europe at the European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science.
