Types of Transboundary Water Governance Regimes: Theoretical Discussion and Empirical Illustrations
This chapter offers an analytical tool for exploring the governance of transboundary rivers by presenting three governance regimes: integrated, monofunctional and polycentric. First, the theory underpinning each model is introduced and discussed, then each is illustrated by a specific case study—the Rhine for the integrated regime, the Danube for the monofunctional regime and the Columbia River for the polycentric regime.
