This chapter examines concept of international boundaries. It considers the character and modus operandi of international boundaries, how these are determined and changed, and the justification for the current practice of endorsing inherited and existing borders. It discusses the current international norm of uti possidetis juris, which in a nutshell, states that ethnonationality or any other sociological definition of collective self is not by itself a valid basis for claiming self-determination.

Keywords:   international boundaries, borders, international relations
