TO THE PROBLEM OF INTERNATIONAL LEGITIMIZATION OF NEW STATES: POLITICAL AND LEGAL ANALYSIS

abstract 1171603037 issue 117 pp. 600 – 611 31.03.2016 ru 691
The article is devoted to the problem of legitimization of new states that came into be in the post-socialist period as a result of secession processes. The relevance of this topic is accounted for by the intensification of these processes in various parts of the world and the ensuing quest of the new polities for independence and recognition. These processes reflect a historically grounded discrepancy between the need of the people in the new states for self-identification and the desire to keep their territorial integrity intact. This is aggravated by the fact that political and legal settlement of the problem of international recognition of the new polities has so far not been achieved. This leads to various conflicts, misunderstanding and the policy of double standards. The key idea consists in the following: a fully valid legitimacy of power in the “de facto”, or “contested” states cannot be achieved through the internal recognition of power alone, without the external constituent – the international recognition of the new polity. The article also focuses on the interpretation of various names attributed to such polities, especially those that sprang up on the post-soviet territories. A special attention is devoted to highly contested conceptual and legal approaches to the problem, subject for discussions in the politicolegal sphere
