Examines the different types of border disputes by going beyond the traditional questions of 'titles of territory' and issues of the location of the boundary. Through an historical analysis, the authors show that boundaries serve a variety of functions depending on the social relationships they were intended to mediate. Eight case studies are cited as examples to examine alternative strategies for resolving disputes. Co-published with the Institute of War and Peace at Columbia University.
Friedrich Kratochwil is Assistant Professor of International Relations at Columbia University. Harpreet Mahajan is Professor of Political Science at Columbia University. Paul Rohrlich is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Vermont.
