Staff from the Centre have co-edited a special issue of the inter-disciplinary journal ‘Water International’, focusing specifically on the UN Watercourses Convention (UNWC), which was published this week.
Reader in International Law, Dr Alistair Rieu-Clarke, and Researcher, Mr Rémy Kinna, from the Centre, along with Ms Flavia Rocha Loures, Senior Programme Officer at the WWF, co-edited the special issue, entitled: “The UN Watercourses Convention: What Relevance in the 21st Century?”. It is accessible here.
It features a collection of the best papers presented at a symposium held at the University in June 2012 which focused on the UNWC’s role and relevance in the 21st Century.
This special issue, as with the symposium, brings together a broad and diverse range of papers dealing with crucial, topical aspects and questions regarding the future of this global framework agreement. The aim is to promote and disseminate discussion and debate about the existing and potential relevance of the UNWC amongst a wide variety of stakeholders.
The other papers presented at the symposium and their accompanying abstracts will be published in late April 2013 via the CWLPS’s website here.
