Abstract

Following a change in California legislation granting municipalities the right to secede, the secessionist debate in Los Angeles is not so much concerned with normative issues, but more with devising an effective and revenue-neutral process for secession. Using a threefold theoretical approach based on theories of secession, regulation theory and theories of state rescaling, and theories of social movements, the paper argues that the political opportunity structures provided by globalisation and the prevalent neo-conservatism, might explain how secession movements in Los Angeles are able to mobilise large efforts to their cause
