Exploring an Integrated Approach to the Resolution of International Boundary and Territorial Disputes

18-19 April 2013
Technical Workshop 17 April 2013

The inaugural London International Boundary Conference will take place on 18 and 19 April 2013 at the Royal Geographical Society. It will provide a unique and multidisciplinary insight into the complex world of international boundary and sovereignty disputes. Speakers will be 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 conference will also run a half-day technical workshop on 17 April 2013, offering a practical introduction to maritime limits and boundaries.

The London International Boundary Conference 2013 is CPD accredited for solicitors and members of the bar.
