We study the stabilization of global solutions of the Kawahara (K) equation in a bounded interval, under the effect of a localized damping mechanism. The Kawahara equation is a model for small amplitude long waves. Using multiplier techniques and compactness arguments we prove the exponential decay of the solutions of the (K) model. The proof requires of a unique continuation theorem and the smoothing effect of the (K) equation on the real line, which are proved in this work.
