چکیده مقاله :
One significant problem of trans-boundary rivers, which has been causing various challenges and disputes throughout the world, is that the amount of demand and need of riparian states is larger than the available water. Hence, one of the main challenges in trans-boundary rivers management problems is that how we can allocate the limited and shared available water among riparian states when it is not sufficient to satisfy the claims of all riparian states so that it would be more equitable and reasonable. In this study, we survey the application of bankruptcy theory to solve this problem in trans-boundary rivers. Furthermore, we propose a new bankruptcy rule to help solving conflict in trans-boundary reallocation problems and investigate its application in a real case study. The results reveal that this method is potentially helpful to solve conflict over trans-boundary water resources problems
