International law and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
The long-standing transboundary watercourse dispute between Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) represents a danger to the region's stability. Despite a long decade of negotiation, the crisis has been characterized by high levels of tension and low levels of cooperation between the three states.
In this episode, we are joined by Anne Funnemark, researcher fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, to understand how and if international law may suggest some key principles and approaches useful to supporting the Nile crisis resolution.
Anne Funnemark is also the author of the report “Water Resources and Inter-state Conflict: Legal Principles and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam”.
