9780415838924: International Law and Boundary Disputes in Africa (Routledge Research in International Law)

Africa has experienced a number of territorial disputes over land and maritime boundaries, due in part to its colonial and post-colonial history. This book explores the legal, political, and historical nature of disputes over territory in the African continent, and critiques the content and application of contemporary International law to the resolution of African territorial and border disputes.

Drawing on central concepts of public international law such as sovereignty and jurisdiction, and socio-political concepts such as colonialism, ethnicity, nationality and self-determination, this book interrogates the intimate connection that peoples and nations have to territory and the severe disputes these may lead to. Gbenga Oduntan identifies the major principles of law at play in relation to territorial, and boundary disputes, and argues that the predominant use of foreign based adjudicatory mechanisms in attempting to deal with African boundary disputes alienates those institutions and mechanisms from African people and can contribute to the recurrence of conflicts and disputes in and among African territories. He suggests that the understanding and application of multidisciplinary dispute resolution mechanisms and strategies can allow for a more holistic and effective treatment of boundary disputes.

As an in depth study into the legal, socio-political and anthropological mechanisms involved in the understanding of territorial boundaries, and a unique synthesis of an African jurisprudence of international boundaries law, this book will be of great use and interest to students, researchers, and practitioners in African and Public International Law, International Relations, and decision-makers in need of better understanding the settlement of disputes over territorial boundaries in both Africa and the wider world.

Book Description Routledge. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 256 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.Lord Curzons view that frontiers are the razors edge on which hang suspended the modern issues of war or peace, of life or death to nations holds true in the 21st century. Sovereignty and jurisdiction, as well as effective territorial control, are problematic concepts the world over and Africa has experienced a number of territorial disputes over land and maritime boundaries both in the past and the present, due in part to its colonial and post-colonial history. This book explores the legal, political, historical, cultural and endemic nature of disputes over territory in the African continent within the discourses of public international law and international relations. It examines the manifestations of territorial, boundary and demarcation disputes across Africa based on a chapter by chapter analysis of the various sub regions on the continent. The book analyses legal theories and state practice to develop procedures and mechanisms that will successfully detect, prevent, manage and resolve boundary problems in Africa in a manner which promotes regional integration. It synthesises the available treaty obligations, regional rules and arrangements, field data and state practice in order to set out legal and diplomatic strategies which will uniquely serve African states decision makers, lawyers, mediators, arbitrators, political scientists and academics as a useful resource in understanding the settlement of disputes over territorial boundaries in Africa. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780415838924
