This seminar will seek to explain the complex relationships between international law, law enforcement, negotiation and litigation that surrounds water law disputes. Through a variety of panel discussions and speeches by industry experts, the seminar will consider the relationship between legal and scientific expertise in the field. The aim is to introduce the Water Convention and its Implementation Committee, and to consider the creation and effect of dispute avoidance instruments such as the 1992 UNECE Water Convention and the follow up Guide to Implementing the Convention (September 2013). In addition, there will be an exploration into the use of different experts in international litigation, with special reference to the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
