Resource Frontiers has six interlinked objectives:


  1. Document practices of trans-border river management activities, both proposed and on-going, relating to the Selenga

  2. Understand contexts in which multilateral legal agreements concerning the use of trans-border rivers are unappealing to State parties

  3. Understand the frictions that emerge when different national legal systems regulate governance of the same trans-border rivers

  4. Understand how environmental management of the Selenga responds to the twin regional pressures of economic development and environmental degradation

  5. Identify trans-border water management strategies that are both environmentally non-damaging and promote shared use of trans-border rivers

  6. Understand environmental and ecological values embedded in both official and unofficial resource management practices and discourses concerning the Selenga
