Evolution of transboundary water politics in the Euphrates-Tigris Basin
CitationKibaroglu, A. (April 21, 2016). Keynote speech entitled “Evolution of Transboundary Water Politics in the Euphrates-Tigris Basin” jointly organized by the Mershon Center for International Security Studies, Middle East Studies Center at the Ohio State University, Columbus.
The purpose of this two-day workshop is to uncover the intersections between technical and traditional knowledge bases, and address the misunderstanding that arise due to conflicting epistemic perspectives. The objective of the workshop is to uncover cases in which local wisdom has the potential to aid proper implementation of technical solutions, as well as the pitfalls that should be avoided. Current issues, such as the impending evacuation around the Tigris due to issues with the Mosul dam, make this workshop particularly salient.
