Chapter Summary

The three tribunals are, in chronological order: the Eritrea-Yemen Arbitration Tribunal, which operated between 1996 and 1999; the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission, which functioned from 2001 to 2007; and the Eritrea-Ethiopia Claims Commission, which began work in 2001 and at the time of writing (2008) is still active. This chapter describes these tribunals and their work and adds some reflections on their wider significance. Although limitations of space make it impossible to go into their activity in great detail, sketching the tribunals' main features can at least provide a basis for some general conclusions. The discussion of each tribunal which follows is therefore divided into three parts: first an overview of its activity and the legal background and then an outline of its substantive achievements followed by consideration of the broader implications.
