Conference “A Bridge Over Troubled Waters: Dispute Resolution in the Law of International Watercourses and the Law of the Sea”

The settlement of interstate fresh water and maritime disputes is currently undergoing a period of great change, creating both challenges and opportunities.

Organised in cooperation with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on 25-26 September 2017, and with the financial support of the Luxembourg National Research Fund, the conference brought together internationally renowned experts to evaluate the progress made thus far in these two distinct, yet related, fields, and to discuss the potential for future developments. By focusing on the legal aspects that are common to fresh water and maritime disputes, the conference aimed to yield beneficial comparisons that could serve as the basis for cross-fertilization in both areas.

The first day of the conference was dedicated to the resolution of international fresh water disputes, while the second day focused on maritime dispute settlement. Each day featured four panels that addressed the most controversial and salient aspects of these two types of disputes and the methods, forums, and principles used in their resolution.

Participants in the conference included academics, practitioners, and government officials from Luxembourg, Europe, and around the world. There were also poster presentations by young researchers working on fresh water and maritime issues.
