CANADIAN-UNITED STATES PRACTICE AND THEORY RESPECTING THE INTERNATIONAL LAW OF INTERNATIONAL RIVERS: A STUDY OF THE HISTORY AND INFLUENCE OF THE HARMON DOCTRINE

Authors

  • JACOB AUSTIN

Abstract

The author believes that the new theme for Canada—U.S. relations involves the common management of the continent in the best interest of both nations. This article outlines one aspect of that theme: the regulation of international rivers; it also traces the development and influence of one idea in international law—territorial sovereignty or the Harmon doctrine—and evaluates its status at the present time. It focuses largely on two Canadian—U.S. treaties, the Boundary Waters Treaty and the Convention to Regulate the Level of the Lake of the Woods, and a number of other academic opinions. It concentrates on the Columbian River System to illustrate the dynamics under discussion.
