International Water Law and the Quest for Common Security

|

New publication from PhD Alumnus, Bjorn-Oliver Magsig, Helmholts Centre for Environmental Research, Germany. This book analyses transboundary water interaction as a ‘case study’ for advancing public international law to fulfil its responsibility of promoting international peace and security.

Brill Research Perspectives, International Water Law

A number of researchers and authors face the dilemma of publishing a research outcome that is deemed too long for journal articles and too short for a book.
