The Disputed Territories of the World

123 countries around the world are currently involved in territorial disputes. For example, the USA is currently involved in territorial disputes with Cuba, the Bahamas, Haiti, Colombia, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Honduras, the Marshall Islands and Tokelau.

A World of Disputed Territories is an interactive map of all the territories around the world whose ownership is contested by more than one country. By clicking on a country on the map you can view all the territorial disputes it is involved in and who those disputes are with.

After you select a country on the map all the that country's currently disputed territories are colored yellow on the map and all the other countries involved in the dispute(s) are colored blue. Select one of the disputed territories (colored yellow) and you can read a brief report on the nature of the dispute and the countries involved.
