The Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Sudanese Peace Process: Legal Issues from the 'Abyei' Arbitration in Reviewing the Mandate of an Ad Hoc Body

Australian International Law Journal
Volume 16 (2009)

Abstract: The legal functions of the 2008 'Abyei Arbitration' Tribunal in reviewing the mandate of the Abyei Boundaries Commission (ABC) and ABC Experts, two ad hoc bodies formed in 2005 to decide on Abyei land boundary demarcations following a referral to the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) during the Sudan Peace Process, are discussed. The Tribunal ruled that ABC Experts exceeded its mandate in drawing boundary lines for the Abyei region without providing adequate reasons or documentation for the process.
