The authors provide an analysis of numerous bilateral and multilateral instruments concerning water co-operation, which demonstrate that even between States with different political and social systems and different policy goals, co-operation with respect to water is not only possible, but can also be beneficial to all parties. In their research the authors also consider the legal position of the indigenous Saami peoples of the region, a population whose very existence and livelihood are closely linked to their physical environment.
Professor Vaughan Lowe underlines in Chapter Four the basis for the selection of the Nordic countries and Russia as the focus of the book. The co-operation between these States provides a blueprint for watercourse co-operation in other regions of the world. As such, it will appeal to both practitioners and academics alike.
