Chapter 3: The acquisition of derivative titles of territorial sovereignty in the law and practice of European colonial expansion
In this chapter, Mamadou Hébié examines the conditions upon which colonial powers acquired derivative titles of sovereignty over territories belonging to local political entities. It reviews the different legal frameworks applicable to the use of force during colonial practice, as well as the legal significance of the agreements concluded between colonial powers and local political entities. Taking into account the possibility for acquiescence to create new territorial situations, the chapter examines the conditions under which a claim of acquiescence can prosper in such unequal relations such as those that often existed between colonial powers and local political entities.
