Abstract or Summary
  • A prevalent assumption among those engaging in secessions is that their quality of life will improve once they establish their own nation. This study examined this assumption by looking at how a successful secession impacted peoples’ quality of life. Despite the sheer number of active secessionist movements, very few actually manage to successfully create a nation. Since World War II there have only been four: Bangladesh from Pakistan in 1971, Eritrea from Ethiopia in 1993, Timor-Leste from Indonesia in 2002, and South Sudan from Sudan in 2011. Five indices were used to assess both pre- and post-secession quality of life for these four successful movements. Four of these indices were political rights, civil liberties, casualties of war, and economics, while the fifth index, overall quality of life, was a composite measure of the other four. Furthermore, post secession was broken down into time intervals to determine whether quality of life improves as time goes on and movements get farther away from their liberation. Analyses found few trends across any of the indices or time periods. Thus the quality of life of people after they successfully seceded is uncertain. Key Words: Secession, Quality of Life
