Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine Sovereignty Dispute

REFUTATION OF THE BRITISH PAMPHLET “GETTING IT RIGHT: THE REAL HISTORY OF THE FALKLANDS/MALVINAS”

by Marcelo G. Kohen and Facundo D. Rodríguez

The dispute over the South Atlantic islands that Britain calls the Falklands and Argentina claims as the Islas Malvinas has unique features. Still, the legal and political problems at its centre—the tension between sovereignty based on prior title, the principle of territorial integrity, and the right of “a people” to self-determination—are core issues in many of the other difficult conflicts that beset our rapidly changing world.


The Falklands War did not resolve the dispute between Britain and Argentina; after a period of stalemate, new initiatives emerged, and new proposals were offered. The author argues that the opportunity now exists for all three parties, Argentina, Britain, and the islanders, to get beyond outdated assumptions and rigidly held positions and construct a new framework for discussions and negotiations based on the real and present mutual interests of all concerned. This book makes an important contribution to the ongoing debate on the fate of the Falklands/Malvinas and the field of international law and conflict resolution.
