Abstract
In the XX century, the War in Chaco between Bolivia and Paraguay (1932–1935) was the most prominent boundary dispute in Latin America. Obviously, the studies of international mediators’ durational (1927–1938) diplomatic efforts aimed to the settlement of the conflict are of great interest. In the prewar period, these attempts were undertaken by Argentina and Washington Commission of Neutrals (Columbia, Cuba, Mexico, USA and Uruguay). The rivalry of these two centers let Bolivia and Paraguay use the tactic of maneuvering. Regardless the failure, in the process of talks the important experience for the future diplomatic activity had been accumulated. The rivals’ claims were stated and their real interests were clarified. The talks had contributed to the development of mediation techniques and finding of appropriate trade-offs. The role of the United States in the settlement of conflict had clarified the pattern of future changes in their political activity in Latin America.
