The International Boundary by Limult

Borders are political boundaries of legal jurisdictions, such as governments, sovereign states, federated states, and other subnational entities. They are established through agreements between political or social entities that control those areas; the creation of these agreements is called boundary delimitation.

In spite of the fact that international boundaries are a
very important tool, maybe the most essential one for stabilizing the relations
between nations, an up-to-date, internationally agreed model of boundary making
does not exist, nor does a comprehensive attempt to extend the early four-phase
description of the process.

The lack of such a model leads to insufficient technical
support for statesmen with regard to delimitating the boundary and the
practical arrangements associated with it. Statesmen on both sides usually have
to come to an agreement in a tense atmosphere, sometimes after wars or during
tough conflicts. They act under public and sometimes even international

The process of negotiation, which usually includes the
requirement to compromise with regard to national interests, leaves them no
room for any technicalities: these must be dealt with by professional staff
with legal and geospatial training and professional experiences. Consultation
with people who may not have the proper knowledge and technical skills may
cause problems later on during the boundary-making process.

Effect of Unclear Definition of Boundary

Unclear defining of the boundary in the allocation may
result in problems during delimitation and subsequent delays in executing the
agreement. If the definition of the delimitation and the guidance to the
demarcation are insufficient, a conflict may arise before 18 or during the
demarcation. If the demarcation is not well documented and mutually and
formally agreed on, it may cause conflicts and even wars in the future. If the
boundary is not well maintained and the boundary zone not well administered, the
behavior on the ground will not fit the boundary line, which may cause
conflicts in the future.

A comprehensive boundary model may resolve these potential problems prior to their appearance. It serves as a source of reference and as a check list, which may reduce complications and speed up negotiations. Also, if followed by the two parties, reduce misinterpretations and conflicts, and speed up the process of the demarcation on the ground, which follows the agreement, as well as contribute to future precise reconstruction or densification of the boundary markers.
