Climate change and rising oil prices have thrust the Arctic to the top of the foreign policy agenda and raised difficult issues of sovereignty, security and environmental protection. Improved access for shipping and resource development is leading to new international rules on safety, pollution prevention and emergency response. Around the Arctic, maritime boundary disputes are being negotiated and resolved, and new international institutions, such as the Arctic Council, are mediating deep-rooted tensions between Russia and NATO and between nation states and indigenous peoples. International Law and the Arctic explains these developments and reveals a strong trend towards international cooperation and law-making. It thus contradicts the widespread misconception that the Arctic is an unregulated zone of potential conflict.

Why do states often fail to cooperate, using transboundary natural resources inefficiently and unsustainably? This book, first published in 2002, examines the contemporary international norms and policy recommendations that could provide incentives for states to cooperate. Its approach is multi-disciplinary, proposing transnational institutions for the management of transboundary resources. Benvenisti takes a fresh approach to the problem, considering mismanagement as the link between domestic and international processes. As well, he explores reasons why some collective efforts to develop the international law on transnational ecosystems have failed, while others succeeded. This inquiry suggests that adjudicators need to be assertive in progressively developing the law, while relying on scientific knowledge more than on past practice. 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, and international relations scholars and practitioners.

The effective and efficient management of water is a major problem, not just for economic growth and development in the Nile River basin, but also for the peaceful coexistence of the millions of people who live in the region. Of critical importance to the people of this part of Africa is the reasonable, equitable and sustainable management of the waters of the Nile River and its tributaries. Written by scholars trained in economics and law, and with significant experience in African political economy, this book explores new ways to deal with conflict over the allocation of the waters of the Nile River and its tributaries. The monograph provides policymakers in the Nile River riparian states and other stakeholders with practical and effective policy options for dealing with what has become a very contentious problem—the effective management of the waters of the Nile River. The analysis is quite rigorous but also extremely accessible.

Borders represent an intriguing paradox as globalization continues to leap barriers at a vigorous pace, merging economies and cultures through world trade, economic integration, the mass media, the Internet, and increasingly mobile populations. At the same time, the political boundaries separating peoples remain pervasive and problematic. Borders and Border Politics in a Globalizing World offers a carefully selected group of readings to enhance student understanding of the complexities of border regions. The reader brings together key writings on the histories of borders, their social development, their politics, and the daily life that characterizes them. The authors place their analyses of these issues in an international context, stressing how borders influence, and how they are influenced by, global processes. The selections provide a window on our current understanding of human interactions at and along national and interethnic boundaries, interactions that will characterize borders and border politics for decades to come. Drawing on a worldwide set of case studies, this text divides border issues into seven thematic categories: borders as barriers; borders, migrants, and refugees; borders and partitioned groups; borders, perceptions and culture; borders and the environment; borders, goods, and services; and maritime and space borders. An excellent text for courses on boundaries, ethnicity, and international relations, this collection of cutting-edge information and analysis on borders and border politics in the context of ongoing globalization will shed light both upon international and subnational boundaries and upon the unfolding processes of globalization.

As a developing international norm, the process of managing transboundary resources represents a significant opportunity for the development of peaceful cooperation through equitable and sustainable means-and yet, paradoxically, this management process has the power also to create new tensions and reinforce pre-existing divisions amongst interested parties. This book explores the manifestations of this contradiction in the de facto partitioned state of Cyprus. How has transboundary resource management operated across Cyprus's de facto boundary? Why have problem-solving mechanisms, formed to deal with some transboundary resources, failed to achieve success in connection with others? Has it been possible to de-link resource conflict issues from the protracted political conflict, so that the former could be resolved without reference to the latter? This book provides the most comprehensive demonstration yet that post-partition Cyprus has exhibited a number of islands of cooperation over transboundary resource management and that, under certain politico-geographical conditions, the Cyprus conflict has not been unchanging and intractable. Of equal importance, however, it identifies an increasingly diverse and complex form of 'transboundary relations' that have coexisted with, and have been directly related to, a central cleavage over the political economy of recognition. 'Cooperation' has become, both for the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, a matter of judging its importance in terms of potential gains/losses. It is demonstrated that, as with a majority of partitioned states, transboundary resource management in Cyprus is patently concerned with configurations of power, transboundary resource needs, the role of interests and ideas, and the functions of the partition boundary itself. Set within this framework, transboundary resources in Cyprus appear increasingly prevalent in the island's affairs and represent a potentially critical focus both for future cooperation and conflict. While this book does not blindly offer a prescription for the resolution of this dilemma, it seeks to enhance what has been a surprisingly circumscribed understanding not only of cooperation within and across the boundaries of Cyprus, but also of the limits to that cooperation.

Freshwater is the most valuable and fragile of the earth's life-supporting substances. Most major rivers, our principal sources of freshwater, cross national boundaries. Their sustainable management is both vital and challenging. Why do efforts to manage international rivers succeed in some cases and fail in others? The author argues that an understanding of the politics of river management is essential. Based on a coherent analytical framework that draws on theories of political economy and international relations, this study systematically compares five cases of international river management. This comparison produces generalizable insights into the determinants of success and failure. It also generates important lessons on how to manage transboundary rivers more effectively. By offering both theoretical insights and practical solutions to international rivers problems, the book appeals to a variety of readers, including students of international politics, practitioners, and those interestedin water issues and international environmental problems in general.
