In this chapter I locate some of the fundamental problems of self-determination within the context of republican liberalism and regulatory liberalism. Recall from Chapter 2 that the former endorses the spread of democracy in pursuit of freedom as well as international peace. The latter promotes the rule of international law and other cooperative regimes, practices and institutions to regulate an increasingly interdependent international society. Unfortunately for liberal internationalism, these two drivers of the liberal internationalist vision do not mutually reinforce each other in promoting democratic national self-determination.
