Abstract

The state is the central type of legal person recognized by international law. Yet, since there are other legal persons so recognized, the possession of legal personality is not in itself a sufficient mark of statehood. This chapter discusses the legal criteria of statehood, some issues of statehood, secession and self-determination, and identity and continuity of states.
