Recenzii

An indispensable work for those working with international water law.
The Commentary to the UN Watercourses Convention is without doubt a major achievement. It deals in a competent and scholarly manner with a complex Convention, which is not free from controversies. All chapters are informative and, at the same time, analytical.
