Abstract. The article is devoted to the disclosure of the essence and legal significance of the international
border dispute. It is determined that the specific nature of the international border dispute manifests itself in the elemental features (object, subjects) and non-elemental features (system of legal regulators, legal means of peaceful dispute settlement, set of legal procedures for dispute settlement, legal consequences of the dispute). It is proved that the international border dispute is a complex polyfunctional phenomenon in the international law, organically associated with various system-structural units of the international law. We revealed the significance and tendencies of the law enforcement practice of the UN International Court of Border Disputes.
Key words: international border dispute, elemental features, non-elemental features, legal regulator, legal
