1. Fu, Yi. The Analysis of the International Legal Water Regime of the Mekong River Basin.
Degree: PhD, Juristische Fakultät, 2017, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen
On 27 August 2014, the world famous 1997 Convention on the Law of the Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses (the 1997 UNWC) entered into force. This event once again made international water law become a hot topic in the academic field, especially that of international public law. Moreover, according to the rapid development of the economy in Southeast Asia and also China, the Mekong River basin is gaining more and more attention in many respects. This dissertation focuses on international water law as it specifically applies to the Mekong River basin. The research presented herein analyzes the Mekong water regime firstly; secondly, it identifies the problems with this regime by means of assessment and comparison; lastly, it designated ways in which the regime could be improved upon. The author presents an in-depth analysis of the international legal water regime of the Mekong River basin and proposes an assessment thereof. She also uses another famous and mature international water regime, namely the Rhine water regime, to make a functional comparison focusing merely on the realistic functions of these two regimes. This comparison is an integral point of this dissertation, and draws a clear picture for people to understand what an international water regime can do in reality. At the same time, this comparison provides a series of inspirations for considerations on how to improve the Mekong water regime. In order to lay a more effective foundation for suggestions on how to achieve this objective, the author also uses the 1997 UNWC, which entered into force in 2014, as a model for the improvement of the only specific legally binding basis of this regime, namely the 1995 Mekong Agreement. Based on the analysis, assessment, and comparisons just described, the author distinguishes the optimal direction for efforts to improve the Mekong water regime. In the last chapter, the author expresses that not only the legal basis but also the regime’s institution should be improved; furthermore, the relationships with the donors, the NGOs, the public and also the upstream countries, especially China, must also be taken into account for its future development. The objective of the dissertation is to give its readers an explicit understanding of the Mekong River basin’s international legal water regime and know its characters and drawbacks. Two of the comparisons laid out in this dissertation are also two crucial new points for readers to draw inspiration from. The improvement suggested provides several meaningful ways of achieving the future development of the Mekong water regime, as well as a good basis for guiding the actions of the Mekong River Commission and also for regional cooperation and communication.
