Water Politics in the Middle East : A Context for Conflict or Cooperation?, Hardback Book

Water Politics in the Middle East : A Context for Conflict or Cooperation? Hardback

Description

Most studies of water scarcity in the Middle East conclude that there is a significant risk of imminent conflict, even warfare, between states in the region.

This book demonstrates that the evidence does not support this doom-laden prediction.

Indeed, the authors show that although water scarcity has occasionally played a role in disputes in the Middle East, it has much more often promoted co-existence between adversaries.

The reasoning behind this hypothesis is that water is too critical to be put at risk by warfare.
