Luis L. Schenoni, a PhD candidate in political science and Gary Goertz, a professor of political science at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, wrote an article for International Studies Quarterly titled "Settling Resistant Territorial Disputes: The Territorial Boundary Peace in Latin America." They address the question of why some territorial disputes defy settlement, discussing how the resistant territorial disputes in post–1945 Latin America that have attention, altered preferences, and third-party assistance simultaneously, always settle.
