Chapter 7: The codification of universal norms: a means to promote cooperation and equity?
The codification of law is a practice of long standing. This chapter looks at its use and the functions it may serve in the field of international water law. After providing a brief background on codification in general, the chapter examines more specifically efforts to codify norms of customary international law relating to the utilization of international watercourses, focusing on work within the context of the United Nations. Finally, the chapter surveys evidence on the question posed in its title: whether the codification of international water law promotes cooperation and equity.
