Application of principle uti possidetis juris in the frontier dispute between Burkina Faso and Mali
University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Law
Abstract
Decolonized States of Latin America accepted principle uti possitedis juris to escape disputes and armed conflicts. They agreed that frontiers, inherited from colonial time, are transformed by the principle uti possidetis juris in frontiers among new independent States. The Frontier dispute between Burkina Faso and Mali was the first case before the International Court of Justice resolved by application of that principle. The International Court of Justice found that the principle is of universal value and applicable to all cases of decolonization and acquiring independence. The Court explored relationship between the principle uti possidetis juris and other principles of international law - self-determination, equity and effectivité. It considered value of geographic maps in determination of colonial frontiers.
