Exploring an Integrated Approach to International Boundary and Territorial Questions
21-22 April 2015
Technical Workshop 20 April 2015
Following the success of the inaugural London International Boundary Conference, the second conference will take place on 21 and 22 April 2015 at the Royal Geographical Society.
The event will provide a unique and multidisciplinary insight into the complex world of international boundary and sovereignty disputes. Panelists participating are among the world's leading experts and practitioners in the effective resolution of territorial disputes. They will examine recent developments in disputed "hotspots" around the world, and discuss new and emerging ideas for the resolution and management of territorial disputes from legal, geopolitical, technical, commercial and other viewpoints. The conference will examine how these varied, emerging perspectives might inform a more integrated approach to international boundary and territorial disputes.
The London International Boundary Conference will attract all those with an interest in international boundary and sovereignty issues, whatever their particular background or perspective. In addition, a number of representatives from UK and international media will be attending the Conference. The Conference, which will be a not-for-profit event, will be hosted by the Department of Geography, King's College London, Volterra Fietta and the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office.
The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office will also run a half-day technical workshop offering a practical introduction to maritime limits and boundaries. This will be run, prior to the conference, on 20 April in the afternoon and, if justified by demand, may be reprised on 23 April in the morning.
The London International Boundary Conference 2015 is CPD accredited for solicitors and members of the bar.
