Summary: The boundaries between Colombia and Venezuela were supposed to follow the territorial limits as defined in 1810 when Spanish colonial rule ended. The author suggests that these limits were not well drawn leading to individual land disputes. He also provides an analysis of many attempts to reach an agreement about the borders and proposes his own solutions.
Historical Notes: After Independence the Colombian Republic was formed by Venezuela, Ecuador and Colombia (which included what is now Panama). After several failed attempts for conciliation between centralists and federalists, Venezuela separated from the Colombian Republic, followed by Ecuador, both in May of 1830.
