Research Webinar | Risky Business: Private Enterprise, Social Power, and Secession Referenda
Karlo Basta (University of Edinburgh)
Karlo Basta joined PIR in 2020 from Memorial University of Newfoundland, where he was associate professor (senior lecturer) in the Department of Political Science. Basta works on the comparative politics of nationalism, with a focus on multinational states. Basta researches and writes about institutional formation and change in multinational systems, the consequence of that change for political stability, and the politics of nationalist conflict and secession. He is currently completing a book manuscript that brings these themes together (A Theory of the Multinational State: Decentralization, Recognition, and Secessionist Crises, prepared for McGill-Queen’s University Press).
