Dundee Water Centre contributes to the launch of first journal dedicated exclusively to international water law


The first issue of Brill Research Perspectives - International Water Law has been published in both electronic and paper forms under the leadership of Salman Salman, Editor-in-Chief and Honorary of the Centre for Water Law Policy and Science (under the auspices of UNESCO), University of Dundee. Dr Alistair Rieu-Clarke, Reader in International Law, at the Dundee Water Centre is also a member of the editorial board together with Professor Laurence Boisson de Chazournes (University of Geneva), Professor Gabriel Eckstein (Texas A&M University), Professor Lilian del Castillo-Laborde (University of Buenos Aires), Professor Makane Moise–Mbengue (University of Geneva) and Dr. Kishor Uprety (World Bank).

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.
