A legal stratagem of co-operative action

Abstract:

This article is intended to delineate a staged opportunity to create a new legal milieu in which historical legal codification are able to be fine-tuned & propagated into or displace  legal structures currently separated into Maritime, Napoleonic, Islamic, International, military, civil & criminal frameworks. The intent is to roll-out in calculated succession the opportunity to create a new overarching system which could potentially evolve by making collateral concession between neighboring sovereignties. The initial stage encourages economic parity (below), the second addresses militaristic response to violent social injustice (Mexico/Texas), the third also addresses divisive, silent yet blatantly overlooked principles behind drug movement (Pakistan/Afghanistan border & the Khyber Pass)  & the final stage is aimed at peace in the definitive geographic inter-religious flashpoint of global contention (Jerusalem).

Stage I:

This entails the restoration of Bolivia economic parity vis-à-vis international, charitable cooperation between Chile & Peru.

Background

From a historical perspective centuries-old animosity between these 2 rival countries has resulted in repeated armed squirmishes over their respective borders. Deep at the heart of the matter is the commercial & capitalistic impetus to gain control of mineral deposits beneath the contested territory. As a consequence of the battles & respective treatise Bolivia lost significant economic advantage through free transport from their southwest border to the Pacific.

Please see http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/limitsinseas/ibs065.pdf for a definitive statement of the territorial history, diplomatic efforts & current lines of demarcation between Chile & Peru. That it would be conducive to the formation of Good Will & compatriotism & set an international precedent of mutual cooperation is but a by-product of these negotiations that advances both the democratization of non-democratic governments while at the same time availing us to the opportunity to fine-tune a new legal framework which will be further elucidated in Stage II (to follow).

Proposal: Along the 106 miles of joint boundary which has been in contention since 1842 both countries (Peru & Chile) should establish a “non-sovereignty” in which 1 kilometer of each country be ceded into international control thereby creating the opportunity to establish a new code of laws encompassing international maritime law under global control subsumed under an act of bi-national charity for the benefit of the Bolivian nation. Should a channel be dug along this 109 mile corridor then it is my understanding (albeit limited) that this would then set the following precedents:

  • International recognition of a global entity not bound by the legal code of any of the nations which share the respective nations’ ceded territories.
  • Changes to the normal scope of Maritime law concerning bodies of water that are not simply extensions radiating outward from sovereignties’ coastlines.
  • Critical relations to as yet undescribed “Stages” of this underlying legal codification.

 The subsequent & persistent economic disadvantage can & should be addressed in light of Social Justice espoused by such moral & ethical codes as established in Faith of the  Catholic Church, Koranic fiqh & in light of what should globally be recognized as a moral, ethical & socio-economic imperative to alleviate this inequitable condition. That we can cooperatively or under the aegis of contributing nations (i.e. the international United States of America & Mexico) underwrite the construction of a canal is now both more technologically feasible & should be considered emphatically a technological imperative.
