Techniques have to be fairly specific. Border disputes in general aren't - they have lots of causes. A country is pretty complicated. Either might be an optional specialisation.

But the border disputes of a specific country is quite specific: it's a limited list of disputes, each with readily learnable factors and history. Does that make sense?
