This timely volume is a compilation of key articles dealing with the importance of territory for international law in its relationship with power, state building and globalization.

The collection also analyses the evolution and scope of the law of acquisition of territory from colonial times until today, the emergence of new areas for the territorial expansion of states and border delimitation rules. Finally, the selected papers investigate the impact of the human dimension in the way international law addresses territorial issues, particularly the individual and collective human rights, including indigenous peoples and the right to self-determination.

Edited by a leading authority in the field, this collection of papers, preceded by a substantial introduction by Professor Kohen, will be an invaluable source of reference for all those studying or working in the field of territoriality and international law.
