This article explores the gradual transition of the Nile Basin regime from one that operated in a tense, highly competitive political and legal environment to one that is characterized by greater cooperation, coordination and stability. Through the lens of an interactional concept of international law, and drawing on the legal theory of Lon Fuller, the article examines the factors that have helped shape this evolution. It posits that, in the case of the Nile Basin regime, the influence of law in transforming the identities and interests of states is one of these factors.
