In spite of the fact that the attention in Europe is preoccupied with Catalan and Scottish events, there are more reasons to think that Belgium is an essential case study to further the matter of secession.

Abstract

In spite of the fact that the attention in Europe is preoccupied with Catalan and Scottish events, there are more reasons to think that Belgium is an essential case study to further the matter of secession. In fact, the characteristics of the ethnical-linguistic conflict and the dynamic centrifuge of the federal system are strongly moulding the independent Flemish debate, to change Belgium into a place of constitutional innovation, imagining its conversion to a confederal system sui generis.
