This chapter examines the quality of justice in the adjudication and arbitration of territorial and boundary disputes. The judicial and arbitral settlement of disputes between states is a key aspect of international law, and is even more important in an era of a customary and Charter-based prohibition on the use of force. However, in recent times, these types of disputes have acquired a degree of prominence in the international system as evident from the number of specialist tribunals that exercise jurisdiction in different areas of international law.
