Details



IBRU’s online training courses complement our world-renowned professional training workshops.

Our online training courses feature IBRU and Durham University academics, as well as invited expert guest practitioners, and provide broad introductions to core topics in international boundaries. These online courses are a great way to learn more about specific topics or simply refresh your knowledge in areas where you may already have some experience. They can be taken on their own or in preparation for attending one of our more focused, practitioner-led, face-to-face workshops.

IBRU’s online courses are designed to be completed at your own leisure, at a time and place convenient to you.

Introduction to International Boundaries: Definition, Delimitation, and Dispute Resolution

International boundaries are a major source of friction between neighbouring states. Many land boundaries remain poorly defined and fewer than half of the world’s potential maritime boundaries have been even partially agreed. Governments recognise the value of clearly-defined boundaries, yet the political, economic and social complexities of boundary regions, as well as the details of topography and history, often make resolving competing territorial and jurisdictional claims extraordinarily difficult.

This online training course will provide a simple, contextual overview of international boundaries and the practical measures that can be taken to resolve international boundary disputes. Through a series of short online lectures and a final practical exercise, the course will first explore the relevance of borders and then look at land and maritime boundary disputes, before covering methods available for dispute resolution.

In addition to serving as a standalone overview of topics surrounding boundary disputes, the course may also be taken as a foundation or refresher prior to attending one of IBRU’s practitioner-led, face-to-face workshops.

The course is approximately 4 hours in length and consists of 12 training videos and a practical exercise.

Upon completion an IBRU ‘Certificate of Attendance’ will be issued.
