Maritime boundary dispute between Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire


Re: Dispute Concerning Delimitation of the Maritime Boundary between Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire in the Atlantic Ocean (Case no. 23)

The tribunal was asked to determine the precise geographical coordinates of the single maritime boundary dividing areas relating to Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. The decision placed the boundary in the location argued by Ghana, and it was held that Ghana had not violated the sovereign rights of Côte d’Ivoire.

Philippe Sands QC and Alison Macdonald QC were involved in this case.
