This thesis is a comparative law study of the national water laws of four jurisdictions - Scotland, England, South Africa and Queensland Australia. The purpose of the research was to develop an analytical framework for reform of national water law. The management of the water resource is a pressing global concern and law is one of the disciplines working to achieve this. As part of the global policy agenda for water, many states are reforming their national laws; many other actors are also engaged in these processes. However there is no framework for this area of law reform, no structure against which reform proposals can be assessed. This thesis attempts to draw out such a framework, by a primarily positivist and pragmatist analysis.
