Hydropolitics and peacebuilding

Project: Research

Layman's description

The Jordan River basin is one of the main sources of water for Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians.

One aim of this project is to theoretically challenge the established division between water conflict and water cooperation by introducing the local level as a crucial component in transboundary water management.

A second aim is to explore how local communities are affected by the implementation of agreements and hydro-peace projects.

A third aim is to empirically investigate how local Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian communities are affected by water scarcity and national water management policies.

This research project is based on an interdisciplinary cooperation between political science, peace and conflict studies and water resources engineering.
