Abstract

This paper considers recent international practice on recognition of states and governments and identifies the avenues of granting recognition collectively. In so doing, it determines the legal relevance and irrelevance of international recognition and draws the conceptual difference between the concepts of collective recognition of states and governments in contested territorial situations. Particular regard is paid to the status of Taiwan and the nexus of recognition of states and governments on this example.

Keywords: recognition of states, recognition of governments, collective recognition, status of Taiwan
