What is another word for separatist?

Pronunciation: [sˈɛpəɹˌatɪst] (IPA)

The term 'separatist' is often used to refer to individuals or movements that seek to separate from a larger political entity. However, there are several synonyms that can be used to describe such individuals or groups, such as secessionists, separatarians, autonomists, and independentists. Secessionist typically refers to individuals or groups who aim to break off from a larger political entity and form their own independent state. Separatarians, on the other hand, may still seek separation but may also be seen as advocating for greater political or cultural autonomy within a larger state. Autonomists similarly advocate for greater regional or local control, but not necessarily complete separation. Independentists are those who seek complete independence and self-determination for their region.

  • For the sake of national integration in India, it is imperative to set the record straight, to reverse this process of absolutizing any minor difference in identity into a separatist claim to a nation-state. In the specific case of the Sikhs, the obvious fact should be made clear, that Sikh identity is integrated in a hierarchy of differentiation within Hinduism : it is a Bhakti sect within the broad Vaishnava tradition within Sanatana Dharma.
    Koenraad Elst
  • Of course I have nothing to do with racism and xenophobia, and I have my life-story to prove it. Given the democratic slump in Europe, I am convinced that a measured and carefully monitored immigration is necessary. My hometown is host to people from every country, and I have a lot of foreign friends, mostly Indian and Chinese. So, I am not at all against immigrants, and I have personally helped some to integrate or to get naturalized as citizens of my country. But my criticism of Islam stands: Islam is intrinsically separatist and hostile to neighbour communities.
    Koenraad Elst
