The Research Handbook on International Water Law surveys the field of the law of shared freshwater resources. In some thirty chapters, it covers subjects ranging from the general principles operative in the field and international groundwater law to the human right to water and whether international water law is prepared to cope with climate disruption.

Its comprehensive survey of international water law links international water principles to case studies and examples from specific basins, to bring research into real-world relevancy. Different regional traditions and frameworks of international water law are presented in order to provide a global overview. The work is edited by three scholars and practitioners whose work deals with the law of international watercourses and features perspectives from distinguished experts in the field.

This Handbook will be a crucial resource for academics and researchers, students, relevant government agencies, and practitioners interested in water law and humanitarian law.
