Professor Gabriel Eckstein presented “Managing Water Across the Frontier: A Legal and Policy Perspective of Mexico-U.S. Hydro Relations” to grad students at Texas A&M University at Galveston, Oct. 9.

He addressed the law and policy applicable to transboundary surface and ground water resources along the Mexico-U.S. border. He discussed the applicability of international law — in general terms, as well as in terms of international water law — as it relates to water and other natural resources that traverse an international political boundary.

While there, he also collaborated with Texas A&M-Galveston to explore opportunities to partner on future activities, seminars and potentially courses.
