About the Authors
  • This book seeks to examine a consistent theme occurring in judgements and awards given by international tribunals in the matter of boundary disputes, a theme which is predicated on finding some sort of difficulty in the implementation of those awards and judgements. This is a feature prominent in boundary and territorial disputes inasmuch as decisions relative to title to territory and location of a boundary line are always keenly contested and hotly disputed. Two remedies which have frequently been relied on by States are those of interpretation and revision. The author sheds light on how, when and in what circumstances will the tribunal be able to interpret or revise either its own or another tribunal's decisions. By doing so, the study succeeds in contributing to an understanding of this area of the law.

    • Includes six maps for key disputed alignments
    • Allows readers to follow complex boundary features and hence the cases in question
    • At least three maps are hardly ever seen in books

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Dr Kaikobad is to be commended for exposing with great clarity and precision a highly technical legal topic. The load of case law considered and analysed is impressive, placing Kaikobad's personal views and insights always on firm ground. The balance maintained throughout between the demands of finality of international judicial decisions in accordance with res judicata and of stability of international frontiers, on the one hand, and the remedial function that the powers of interpretation and revision may have with regard to the substantive and procedural fairness of judicial proceedings, on the other, adds to the feeling that the present book will constitute for academics and practitioners the primary reference on interpretation and revision of international boundary decisions for years to come.' European Journal of International Law
