The questions that I will focus on in this essay are firstly 1) does Fabota qualify for statehood under Montivedeo Convention? If not does it qualify under a sufficient number as to be a state under UK recognition principles? And thirdly, does other state recognition play a part?
It is difficult to identify criteria for statehood that are universally accepted, therefore as is demonstrated in this question, some states' criteria may be satisfied and would qualify as a state, while other countries like the UK still question Fabota's claim to statehood.
The Montevideo Convention on Rights and Duties of States 1933, attempts to establish a criteria for statehood, by stipulating in Art 1 that a state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications, a) a permanent population, b) a defined territory c) a government and d a capacity to enter into legal relations with other states.
I will discuss these criteria in detail and its application to Fabota and its claim to statehood when advising the British Government whether it should qualify for recognition.
