'Small States' & Long Disputes

On 19-20 May, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Queen Mary University, and The Open University, in partnership with WilmerHale, will present a conference on the particular issues which States with a population of less than 1.5m face in regard to international dispute resolution and regional integration. I will speak on models of cost-efficiency in binding dispute settlement proceedings between States. Further details are available by clicking on the event flyer.

My colleague and fellow correspondent, Pierre-Emmanuel Dupont, recently spoke as well on the settlement of longstanding disputes between States. In March 2016, he appeared at a panel event at the University of Kent to discuss Dr. Gbenga Oduntan's recent treatise, 'International Boundary Disputes in Africa', which masterfully critiques the content and application of contemporary international law to territorial issues on the African continent: https://www.routledge.com/International-Law-and-Boundary-Disputes-in-Africa/Oduntan/p/book/9780415838924
