Chapter Summary

This chapter proceeds on the basis that there are different kinds of territorial disputes which can be classified according to levels of commitment and intensity on the part of the disputants. The varying degree of commitment the disputants bring into the dispute has a bearing on its resolution, as disputes of high intensity is much more difficult to resolve than those of low intensity. Intensity and commitment can be measured in various ways and for the purpose of the chapter a classification of territorial disputes is proposed according to the distinction between homeland and peripheral. The term "homeland" was used by the ethno-nationalist writer Walker Connor to describe the feeling of belonging that exists between people and their sacred soil, the land of their ancestors, the native land, the cradle of the nation. The examination of the Russian-Japanese territorial dispute has several relevant lessons for the Dokdo/Takeshima dispute.
