Abstract

Bridges over Water places the study of transboundary water conflicts, negotiation, and cooperation in the context of various disciplines (such as international relations, international law, international negotiations, and economics), analyzing them using various quantitative approaches, such as river basin modeling and game theory. Case studies of particular transboundary river basins, lakes and aquifers are also considered. This is the first textbook for a relatively recent yet rapidly expanding field of study.

Keywords: Transboudary Water, Conflict, Negotiation, Cooperation, International Water, Law, Water Treaties, River Basin Modeling, Cooperative Game Theory, International Relations, Economics
