Julien Chaisse (Ed.), Charting the Water Regulatory Future: Issues, Challenges and Directions
This chapter reviews the book ‘Charting the Water Regulatory Future: Issues, Challenges and Directions’, edited by Julien Chaisse. In this timely work, several contributors engage with the manifold challenges facing governments, private companies, international organisations, and citizens through an interdisciplinary prism. The book points toward some possible future directions in water regulation and management, discussing three major issues: the challenges that water services pose to public international law frameworks, the protection and promotion of the much-discussed human right to water, and the economic determinants of global water markets. All authors take on the challenge of formulating proposals and offering valuable recommendations for action at the national and international level.
