On January 27, the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
handed down its ruling in a border dispute between Chile and Peru. The decision is an affirmation of the
capacity of the ICJ to find equitable solutions to discrete international
conflicts. The fact that both Chile and Peru are able to
claim the decision as both a compromise and a victory shows that the ICJ can be
a powerful tool for improving international relations.
