Abstract

Adam Fusco examines the idea of Northern Ireland independence in Unionist political thought. He argues that rather than being the expression of Ulster nationalism or a contractarian understanding of political obligation, Unionist arguments for independence were motivated by a classical republican concern: the arbitrary power Northern Ireland is subject to as part of the United Kingdom.
