The “amorality of secession” is not a thought-provoking title. It refers to the approach chosen for this collective volume. According to the Collins online dictionary, “amoral is often wrongly used where immoral is meant. Immoral is properly used to talk about the breaking of moral rules, amoral about people who have no moral code or about places or situations where moral considerations do not apply”. 1 Building upon the second meaning of amoral, which refers to a situation (a secessionist process) in which moral considerations do not apply, this book avoids entering the terrain of the moral foundations of secession. This interdisciplinary volume does not deal with the subject of the immorality or morality of secession, but tries to go beyond the traditional approach that has characterized this field. 2
