Abstract

his paper analyses the conditions set by international and European water law to assure “meaningful” public participation in transboundary water management. At the international  level, we focus on the Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes, and the Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses. This paper provided an overview  of standards for “meaningful” public participation in transboundary water management which can be based on the treaties and directives just-mentioned.
