Our panel seeks to examine the politics of the law of international watercourses. In this regard, I would like to propose, first, an alternative reading as to why politics enters the equation in international water law. Then, I will try to map three of the mechanisms through which this move is performed, and I will end up with some conclusions that, I hope, will be of use for those interested enough to drop by-and those consulting the proceedings at a later stage.
