Conversations in Conflict Studies presents: IJC Commissioner Dereth Glance
204 Maxwell Hall
"Sustaining Boundary Waters: The Role of the International Joint Commission in Preventing and Resolving water conflicts in US-Canada shared waters." IJC Commissioner Dereth Glance will discuss the role of the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 which established the International Joint Commission as an autonomous body charged with preventing and resolving water conflicts between the United States and Canada. For over 100 years, the IJC has worked from coast to coast in large and small watersheds to fulfill this obligation under the treaty. Commissioner Glance will discuss the application of strong science and effective governance that support ongoing harmony between Canada and the United States. Her talk will specifically focus on the IJC International Watershed Initiative and priorities in the Great Lakes, including proposed regulation approaches and the forthcoming Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.
