Workshop Details

International boundaries continue to be a major source of friction between neighbouring states. Many land boundaries remain poorly defined and only just over half of the world’s potential maritime boundaries have been even partially agreed. Governments recognise the value of clearly-defined boundaries, yet the political, economic and social complexities of boundary regions often make resolving competing territorial and jurisdictional claims extraordinarily difficult.

Led by experienced boundary negotiators, technical experts and legal advisors, this workshop will provide advice and practical guidance on how to resolve international boundary disputes. Through a combination of lectures and practical exercises, the course will first explore how to overcome deadlock in boundary negotiations. Recognising that an equitable agreement cannot always be reached through negotiations, the workshop will also examine the options of dispute resolution involving third-party mediation, conciliation, arbitration and adjudication.

IBRU is delighted to be running this workshop in partnership with Foley Hoag, which has one of the world’s foremost boundary dispute resolution practices.
