This book seeks to examine a consistent theme occurring in judgements and awards given by international tribunals in the matter of boundary disputes, a theme which is predicated on finding some sort of difficulty in the implementation of those awards and judgements. This is a feature prominent in boundary and territorial disputes inasmuch as decisions relative to title to territory and location of a boundary line are always keenly contested and hotly disputed. Two remedies which have frequently been relied on by States are those of interpretation and revision. The author sheds light on how, when and in what circumstances will the tribunal be able to interpret or revise either its own or another tribunal's decisions. By doing so, the study succeeds in contributing to an understanding of this area of the law.

Reviews

"Dr. Kaikobad's excellent book on the interpretation and revision of international boundary decisions should be welcomed..."
--Enrico Milano, Global Law Books

"Kaikobad's volume renders a rarely erudite and perceptive investigation of the issues relating to the international interpretation and revision of boundary decisions..an outstanding contribution both to understanding the interactions between territory and conflict in an era of globalization and to the contextualization and application of judicial remedies..lucid and shrewd."
--Emilian Kavalski, University of Alberta

"[...] Kaikobad has written a worthwhile general introduction to the interpretation and revision of international judgements and awards generally, and to boundary decisions specifically. His major contribution is in organizing and classifying a great variety of treaties and cases involving interpretation and revision disputes."
--Aaron Xavier Fellmeth, Arizona State University College of Law, The American Journal of International Law
