This timely research review discusses key articles dealing with the importance of territory for international law in its relationship with power, state building and globalization. The review also analyses the evolution and scope of the law of acquisition of territory from colonial times until today, the emergence of new areas for the territorial expansion of states and border delimitation rules.
