This issue of the Working Papers was developed by members of the WATERLATGOBACIT

Network’s Thematic Area 4, Transboundary Waters (

thematic-areas/ta4/). The main focus of TA4, as the name suggests, is the politics and

management of transboundary waters, which constitute a subject of the highest global

relevance. In recent decades there have been intense debates about the potential for

conflict and war implicit in the sharing of hydrographic basins between countries, but

there are also long-standing research traditions centred on the historical record of

cooperation and peace between countries sharing transboundary waters. These and

other issues of paramount importance for global water politics and management are

the subject matter of TA4’s activities.

This is the second issue published by the TA4 Series. It features three articles and

a Reflection Note, all of them based on interdisciplinary research projects, including

postgraduate research, focused on the multi-level character of the government and

management of transboundary waters. Wagner Costa Ribeiro, Co-ordinator of TA4, and

Flavia Darre Barbosa, both from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, are the editors of

this issue.
