IBRU: Centre for Borders Research

Professional Training Workshops

IBRU runs regular professional training workshops on practical aspects of boundary-making and dispute resolution, including maritime boundary delimitation, negotiating international boundaries, preparing for litigation and arbitration, geographical information in boundary-making, and archive research for boundary dispute resolution. See workshop themes for further details of the issues covered.


Due to the continued disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, IBRU have decided to postpone all face to face training workshops due to take place in 2020.

IBRU is pleased to announce a scholarship programme to support postgraduate attendance at IBRU training workshops.

Each year, IBRU will award one student a scholarship covering workshop registration, plus up to £500 towards travel expenses, to attend one of that year’s regularly scheduled training workshops. To be eligible a student must be enrolled in a postgraduate course of study, in any discipline.

To find out more on how to apply:


IBRU's workshops will be of value to anyone seeking to improve their understanding of international boundaries. However, they have been designed to be of particular benefit to decision-makers involved in boundary-making, including diplomats, legal advisers, military officers, surveyors, cartographers, oil and gas exploration managers, consultants and senior academics.

IBRU also offers customised training courses, which can be held in Durham or in a location of the client's choice. Please contact the Events Team for further information.

IBRU also hosts academic- and policy-oriented workshops under its Research division.
