An ICO-Consultancy Pool for research and policy development activities is necessary in order to consider the conflict between territorial integrity and self-determination.
The clash between the concept of the right to self-determination and territorial integrity has prevented the advancement of peace processes, but the concept is vital to international peace and security.
Therefore, ICO-Consultancy Pool enlists international lawyers, experts, and academics to consider the conflict between territorial integrity and self- determination. This would assist mediators, officials from international organisations, State officials and self-determination movements. ICO Consultants activities consist of an in-depth analysis of self-determination issues in different continents and highlighting performance in terms of international human rights frameworks and its implementation at the local level.The beneficiaries of ICO Consultancy Pool discussion and policy development activities are academic and diplomatic institutions and civil society engagement on the topic of reconciling the right to self-determination and territorial integrity. We reach out to the community of interest through producing and publishing reports, handbooks, new guidelines for a right to self-determination and other advocacy materials such as audio records or info-graphics.
