Les aspects juridiques de la protection de l'environnement des cours d'eau internationaux du Moyen-Orient

Abstract : The issue of the protection of international watercourses is becoming increasingly important on a global level. The international community is aware of the need to preserve the quality and quantity of water contained by the rivers, and the importance it has for the economies and survival of populations. In the Middle East, the situation is most critical, this arid and semi-arid region is experiencing a drought more severe and knows a parallel population growth, factors that explain a scarcity of water. We should also add a particularly tense political climate, which prevents a joint and shared management, fair and reasonable of resources. States, rather than understanding the urgency of protecting a common interest, prefer to defend their national interests. This thesis aims to study the legal regime of the Middle East's three major international rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, the Jordan and the Nile, a multidisciplinary approach (river law, the right to state sovereignty , the law of treaties, the law of State responsibility and environmental law ...), in order to identify gaps and shortcomings. The rest of the thesis is devoted to the study of what might encourage, in the recent developments in international law, the establishment of a harmonious protection, equitable and sustainable of the water resources in Middle East, through a regional cooperation between the concerned States and between regional and international actors.
