the European Union doesn't allow for an ordered exercise of the right of self determination.

You are asking for an impossibility. By the nature of things, self-determination of a people can not be settled by a legal process. For sovereignty is an assertion by a people and must be secured by brute force, ultimately. A people claiming to be sovereign assert their sovereignty over a particular territory and other sovereigns either assent to it or not. In all cases, the assertion is ultimately backed by brute force and so is the counter-assertion that a dissenting sovereign makes (in this case, Spain). The conundrum is entirely incapable of being resolved in legal terms. Witness the self-assertion of Confederate States of America in 1861---the issue was only resolved through a civil war.
