Event description

Description

The First Century of the International Joint Commission is a two-day conference and workshop on September 25-26, 2017, that will explore aspects of the history and legacy of the International Joint Commission from the time of its origins in 1909 to the present day.

The subject matter for discussion ranges from the institutional origins of the IJC through twentieth century water quality management alongside the regulation of levels, flows and diversions. Papers by Canadian and American researchers will also address the evolution of governance arrangements and the contribution of IJC operations and initiatives to the development of environmental law in Canada and the United States. Programme details are posted online HERE. Upon registration, you will receive a link to the Dropbox folder where conference papers are shared. Please refer to your registration confirmation email for details.

The First Century of the International Joint Commissionwill be of interest to government officials with related responsibilities, to academic researchers concerned with transboundary water management, Canada-U.S. relations and environmental governance, as well as to industry and NGO representatives whose policy work involves related issues.

This conference will contribute to the publication of a book on the history of the IJC edited by Daniel Macfarlane and Murray Clamen.
