First issue of the journal dedicated exclusively to international water law published!

April 2016 sees the publication of the first issue of Brill Research Perspectives – International Water Law (IWL) Journal. The fist issue has been published in both electronic and paper forms. IWL is a quarterly Journal published by Brill. Each issue consists of a single monograph in the range of 25,000 to 45,000 words.

The monograph for the First Issue of IWL is authored by Dr. Gotz Reichert, and titled “Transboundary Water Cooperation in Europe – A Successful Multidimensional Regime?”

The Second Issue will be published in June 2016. The monograph for that issue is authored by Renee Martin-Nagle, and deals with ”Governance Regime for Offshore Transboundary Aquifers.”

The Journal occupies a unique space in that it targets monographs that are deemed too long for a typical journal article, and too short for a book. Thus it is not intended to compete with other water journals; rather, the intention is to supplement their publication work.

The Editor-in-Chief of International Water Law Journal is Dr. Salman M. A. Salman, who is a Fellow with the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) and Honorary Staff at the Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science (CWLPS), University of Dundee.  Dr Alistair Rieu-Clarke, Reader of International Law at the CWLPS, is also a member of the editorial board together with Professor Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, Professor Gabriel Eckstein, Professor Lilian del Castillo-Laborde, Professor Makane Moise-Mbengue and Dr. Kishor Uprety.
