Title: Applying a Game Theory Model to Conflict and Cooperation on the Columbia River
Author: Martinez, Marcos
Subject(s): Game Theory
Water Law
International Law
Middle East
Columbia River
Cooperation
Water Disputes
Abstract: Game Theory represents a powerful analytical model with which we can examine the strategies that different states make when negotiating international watercourses. Although economists have applied game theory to a wide variety of conflict models, international water law scholars like Steven McCaffrey have largely limited themselves to applying traditional international law principles to the law governing international watercourses. Other scholars have applied game theory to international law, but few have connected international water law with game theory. Those few that have made the connection have focused on the recurring disputes in the Middle East. By contrast, I will attempt to apply game theoretic principles to the Columbia River and the disputes that have emerged from sovereign struggles over the River.
