From Bilateralism to Community Interest

The question of title to territory in international law represents a nuanced relationship between land, people, and the international community or, to put it another way, between the rights of the relevant people and the rights of States within the context of international legal regulation. Between the two extremes of the legal irrelevance of the views and rights of persons within the territory and the simple determinative character of such views, the concept of the attribution of title to territory has evolved through several distinct stages. In each stage the sophistication of the process may be seen as rather more evident than is often proposed.
