Example text

In the presence of an irredentist-type transborder group, the self-determination norm has a much higher degree of specificity on the societal level, both mutually constraining an executive while, at the same time, allowing that decision maker the freedom “to choose the norm which best justifies his or her behavior” (Boekle et al, 1999: 10). Likewise, when contending government nationalism is involved, the weakening of perceived international constraints on aggression coupled with weaker societal-level nationalism creates a similarly indeterminate outcome.

In doing so, the theory makes a case for the viability of an empirical approach that treats demographic variables as proxies for underlying normative considerations that breed varying levels of conflict. 3 Specificity refers to the degree of clarity with which a norm can be said to prescribe (or proscribe) state behavior. Commonality describes the size of the worldwide audience that accepts a norm as a prescription of appropriate state behavior. Norms of low specificity or commonality are useless as theoretical constructs, as they are too narrowly observed or too vague to systematically affect state behavior.

Although the later empirical analysis uses politicized ethnicities as “units of analyses,” the political mechanisms underlying group interactions, in lieu of a better term, can best be described as nationalist. A major purpose of this chapter has been to establish why actualizing nationalist goals becomes a common preference among a national group. Nationalism represents the drive of culturally similar and politically active groups to mitigate the influence of foreign influence upon them. The desire for national self-determination, which begins under varied historical circumstances when national awareness comes about for different groups, is perpetuated culturally from generation to generation through norms of reciprocal obligation, which allow collective action to take place.
