In cooperation with the University of Oxford, The Elcano Institute, Madrid and the Scottish Centre on Constitutional Change the Forum plans to implement a research project on the nexus between federalism and secession. This project will look at advanced democracies but, if successful, in a second stage could also include emerging federations. As a first activity, it is envisaged to conduct an international conference at Oxford University on “Responses to secessionism in advanced democracies. Accommodation instruments and the politics of federal reforms” on May 25-26, 2017. The lead expert on this project is Prof. Cesar Colino, Long Distance University Madrid, who is currently on a fellowship at St. Anthony’s College in Oxford.
