About the Authors
  • Why do states often fail to cooperate, using transboundary natural resources inefficiently and unsustainably? Benvenisti examines the contemporary international norms and policy recommendations that could provide incentives for states to cooperate. His approach is multi-disciplinary, proposing transnational institutions for the management of transboundary resources. Although global water policy issues seem set to remain a cause for concern for the foreseeable future, this study provides a new approach to the problem of freshwater, and will interest international environmentalists and lawyers, international relations scholars and practitioners.

    • Comprehensive approach to the study of the international law on transboundary natural resources
    • Theoretical treatment of the relationships between domestic politics and international law
    • Multi-disciplinary study of international norms: using game theory, public choice and several other methods to suggest how international law should be developed and what it should prescribe
