This chapter discusses the notion of boundary, which marks the limitations of State sovereignties accepted by the members of the international community. Boundaries are crucial as they demarcate State jurisdiction and create a great impact on the regime, nationality, and cultural milieu of the inhabitants of the area. Included as well in the chapter are the different boundary treaties which form and define the legal force of the boundary. The chapter also tackles the existence of other territorial regimes and the delimitation and demarcation of African boundaries.
