This essay develops an analysis of the secession clause in Article 4(2) of the Constitution of Liechtenstein, as amended in 2003. Article 4(2) has been described as a unique provision in that it grants each and every municipality within the Principality of Liechtenstein with a right to initiate a withdrawal procedure. This contribution assesses the significance of Article 4(2) in the light of the emerging comparative constitutional law of secession. The results are a mixed picture, with Liechtenstein standing out as an anomaly but also echoing some widespread concerns.

Abstract

This essay develops an analysis of the secession clause in Article 4(2) of the Constitution of Liechtenstein, as amended in 2003. Article 4(2) has been described as a unique provision in that it grants each and every municipality within the Principality of Liechtenstein with a right to initiate a withdrawal procedure. This contribution assesses the significance of Article 4(2) in the light of the emerging comparative constitutional law of secession. The results are a mixed picture, with Liechtenstein standing out as an anomaly but also echoing some widespread concerns.
