Conference: Exploring an Integrated Approach to International Boundary and Territorial Questions

The second London International Boundary Conference will take place on December 1-2, 2015. The theme is: "Exploring an Integrated Approach to International Boundary and Territorial Questions." The program is here. Here's the idea:
The event will provide a unique and multidisciplinary insight into the complex world of international boundary and sovereignty disputes. Panelists participating are among the world's leading experts and practitioners in the effective resolution of territorial disputes. Professor Tullio Treves, former Judge of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (and President of the Seabed Disputes Chamber), will be the keynote speaker of the Conference. The speakers 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.
