Hans Island with Washington Land, Greenland, in the background (photo by Christopher Harrison, courtesy Geological Survey of Canada). Hans Island lies precisely in the middle of the channel; it was named after Hans Hendrik, one of the Greenlandic assistants on the so-called North Polar Expedition, led by C. F. Hall. Hans Island is the smallest of three islands in Kennedy Channel off the Washington Land coast; the others are Franklin Island and Crozier Island. The strait at this point is 35 km (22 mi) wide, placing the island within the territorial waters of both Canada and Greenland (Denmark).

It is so remote that the closest inhabited location is Alert, Nunavut, Canada, km to the north.

However, given the remoteness of the island and the disintegration of the League of Nations of which the PCIJ was the judicial organ in the s, this ruling did not resolve matters.
Consequently, the now eighty-year-old ruling of a defunct court has little power. Following the s, Hans Island faded into obscurity for several decades as both Canada and Denmark attended to more pressing concerns.

The landscape of Hans Island has been barren, to say the least, since Canada first occupied it. Canadian military and state officials have frequently violated the Danish sovereignity at Hans Island.
The Danish navy has suffered no casualties in the struggle for Hans Island. About Canadian Forces personnel were involved in total. We consider Hans Island to be part of Danish territory and will therefore hand over a complaint about the Canadian minister's unannounced visit.
In July , owing to updated satellite imagery, Canadian authorities realized the line constructed as a basis for the maritime boundary but not for land would have run roughly across the middle of the island, but the boundary did not "move" as that required a bilateral agreement by the two states for which negotiations continued.
The two countries maintain a sense of humour in the dispute. And when Canadian military forces come there, they leave a bottle of Canadian Club and a sign saying, 'Welcome to Canada.
