Self-determination

In February of 2018 I was invited to speak at the European Parliament– once on behalf of the right of self-determination of the Catalans, once on behalf of the Armenians of Nagorno Karabagh.

Here the link to one of my video interviews in Brussels

On 9 October 2018 I participated on a panel in The Hague, together with former Rapporteur Ben Emmerson, and we both emphasized the role of self-determination as a conflict-prevention measure.  I also gave an interview to the press.  

If the United Nations wants to be relevant, it is high time that it adopt preventive measures to accommodate the aspiration of so many peoples who today demand self-determination, and so many who tomorrow will be demanding it too.  The most noble role of the UN would be to mediate — and, where appropriate, to organize self-determination referenda.

  1. Thank you. But, as I have written several times, it’s better to write to my gmail address: lvarju7@gmail.com, mailto:lvarju7@gmail.com, especially now as I am planning to close this address.
