Professional Training Workshops

IBRU hosts a number of Professional Training Courses as well as online courses throughout the year. 

IBRU runs regular professional training workshops on practical aspects of boundary-making and dispute resolution, including maritime boundary delimitation, negotiating international boundaries, preparing for litigation and arbitration, geographical information in boundary-making, and archive research for boundary dispute resolution. Issues covered in our most popular workshops include:

  • Maritime boundary delimitation
  • Boundary negotiation and dispute resolution
  • Geographic information in boundary-making
  • Strategies and tools for effective border management
  • Archive research for boundary dispute resolution
  • River boundaries: practicalities and solutions

IBRU’s unique boundary training programme has been running since 1996 attracting over 1,600 participants from 123 countries around the world.

Our professional training workshops are led by teams of expert tutors and provide a relevant combination of background theory and practical application in an informal teaching environment. Numbers are limited to maximise interaction between tutors and participants so we advise you book early to guarantee your place.
