Abstract
    On 16 January 2008, Peru asked the International Court of Justice to delimit its maritime boundary with Chile. Six years later, the tribunal partially accepted the arguments of both parties in its judgment. Something similar happened in 2012 with another case settled by the Court, this time between Nicaragua and Colombia. The correct comprehension of the judgment in the Maritime Dispute (Peru v. Chile) requires a careful reading of the Court's decisions in the Maritime and Territorial Dispute (Nicaragua v. Colombia). There are several factual and legal similarities between these cases, whose judgments produced unease in Latin American state and academic circles. The jurisprudential solution given to the disputes of the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean confirm a growing critical vision towards the work of the Court, which might prove harmful for the settlement of international disputes in this region.
