Land and maritime boundary disputes refer to disputes over the division of land or water bodies among two or more independent countries. The boundary disputes may evolve from historical and/or cultural claims, or they may be brought on by competition of resource exploitation. This book presents up-to-date information about the land and maritime boundary disputes of Africa. In each entry the causes of and consequences of the boundary dispute as well as the experiences and lessons of existing conflict-resolution efforts are briefly described. This book proves useful to researchers with a concern of boundary demarcation and of existing boundary disputes, as well as to policymakers seeking measures in order to minimize or reduce the risk of conflicts and wars stemming from territorial disputes.
