Cession facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The act of cession is the transfer of property to another entity (person, country, etc.). In international law, it commonly refers to land transferred by a treaty. It is different from annexation, where property is taken by force. Cession is voluntary or is supposed to be.


Retrocession is to return something (e.g., land) that was ceded.
