The workshop "Workshop on the role of legal and scientific expertise in the avoidance and settlement of water law disputes" will address the different contributions made by legal and scientific expertise, how those contributions may (or may not) be combined, the difficulties encountered when doing so and the good practices that have emerged. The focus will be on the interaction between the different approaches and their joint impact on dispute avoidance.
The workshop will be held back-to-back with the 4th meeting of the Implementation Committee of the UNECE Water Convention (London, 4 December 2014).
The proceedings of the workshop are expected to be published as a volume in the Brill/Nijhoff International Water Law Series.
