The human right to water under international human rights law is an area of much topical discussion with the appointment of the new UN Independent Expert on the issue of human rights obligations related to access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and movement within the NGO community for an international water treaty. This book provides an overview and examination of the human right to water as determined under international human rights law, including establishing its current legal status and substantive content and dealing with general questions and issues related to economic, social and cultural rights which affect the right to water.
The book goes on to look more specifically at the application of the human right to water in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. As well as exploring the human right to water under international human rights law the book also analyses the international humanitarian law pertaining to occupation and domestic and bilateral provisions for the right to water within the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The book then considers the wider implications of the case study findings looking at what can be done to strengthen the right legally in terms of its status and codification and what remedy can be found for violations of the right, both specifically in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and in a more general context.
The proposed book would be of interest not only to students, academics and practitioners within the field of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, but also to those concerned with the politics, international relations, and conflict resolution, especially in the Middle East region and Israel / Palestine.
