Territorial disputes are widespread. Almost every continent has them. An admiration of territory to one country or another should be reliable with international law, even if the award is the result of negotiations by the parties that have lead to mutually agreed terms. International adjudicative and arbitral bodies usually highlight the legal determinants of a territorial dispute. Latin America is no such exception and here we study about the territorial disputes. Successfully resolved territorial disputes of the past have been noted. In the end, we draw some assumptions about why there is a failure of such carefully drafted solutions.
