Ana Maria Daza-Clark has published the article “Enforcing transboundary water obligations through investment treaty arbitration: China, Laos and the Mekong River”.
The article has been published by the Review of European, Comparative and International Environmental Law in June 2020. It focuses on the intersection between investment law and water law in connection with the construction of dams in the Lancang/Mekong River. It addresses China’s attitudes towards the negotiation and conclusion of economic integration and transboundary water agreements.
In this context, Ana Maria examines some of the most important agreements between China and Laos regarding both the protection of foreign investment and the management of shared waters. Ana Maria is Counsel in AACNI in UK and Lecturer of International Law at the University of Edinburgh.
