dc.description.abstract This thesis explores the linkage between the right to self-determination and democracy. In view of the popular uprisings taking place throughout the Middle East and North Africa, it is highly relevant to revisit the concept of self-determination. In particular, considering the undetermined nature of the right to self-determination, this thesis examines the contemporary legal meaning of self-determination. Specifically, it questions the prospects of â the peopleâ to self-determination against the background of undemocratic structures at the global level. Following the introduction, the second part of this thesis deals with a critical overview of the international legal ideology on self-determination. In the third part, the legal content and scope of the right to self-determination regarding its political and economic dimension will be explored. Consequently, an examination of Egypt's approaches to self-determination will not only illustrate the obstacles to democratization, but will primarily serve as a test case for exploring the (in)compatibility of the process of economic liberalization with the right to self-determination. en
