Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

29. Under International law

 

The UN Charter

Chapter 1 (Article 1) "To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace."

http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/chapter1.shtml

(ICCPR) International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and (ICESCR) International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Article 1
"All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development."......

http://www.ohchr.org/EN/ProfessionalInterest/Pages/CCPR.aspx

(UDHR) Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Article 15

http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml#a15

everyone has the right to a nationality and that no one should be arbitrarily deprived of a nationality or denied the right to change nationality.

Only issue Under International law is there is no legal definition of "peoples". However populations in Yugoslavia for example where considered "peoples" regardless of their diversity within each federal unit.
