Conference: London International Boundary Conference

The inaugural London International Boundary Conference will take place on April 18 and 19, 2013 at the Royal Geographical Society, London. It will provide a unique and multidisciplinary insight into the complex world of international boundary and sovereignty disputes. Speakers at the Conference 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 Conference, which will be a not-for-profit event, will be hosted by 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 at King’s College London on the afternoon of April 17, 2013, offering a practical introduction to maritime limits and boundaries.
