Environmental law research team receives $5,000 grant to study water governance

A grant from the International Council for Canadian Studies will assist Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law professor Eric Dannenmaier and a student research team in their work on transboundary water resource governance.

The $5,000 grant from the Canadian government will help underwrite work by Dannenmaier and his team as they conduct a comparative assessment of community involvement in the negotiation and implementation of transboundary agreements between Canada and the United States concerning the Columbia River and the Great Lakes. Their research seeks to assess the effectiveness of these negotiation processes in facilitating participation among stakeholders across borders.

Dannenmaier, director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program, has been working with students on the project since last summer, and he is leading an Advanced Field Research course this spring semester that will continue the work with the support of the new grant. The grant will be used, in part, to fund student travel to research areas in the Great Lakes and Columbia River basins to conduct interviews and gather information.

“This as an important confluence of research and experiential learning,” Dannenmaier said. “It means that our students will have the benefit of externally-funded field travel to support their education, and our faculty’s contribution to scholarship on water resource governance will be even stronger. We are very grateful to the International Council for Canadian Studies for supporting our analysis of democratic institutions in the conservation of transboundary water resources.”

  1. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!

  2. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  3. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  4. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  5. Different rules for different folks....
