dc.description.abstract This thesis describes the positive aspects of Environmental and Interfaith Peace Building programs in the Jordan River basin and the way that they fill the practical gap between water allocations within negotiated peace agreements and the physical implementation of those allocation stipulations. Through a review of traditional Conflict Analysis and Resolution theory, and more modern Environmental and Interfaith Peace Building theory, it is communicated that the peace building programs in the Jordan River basin operate on a plane of theoretical soundness which is respective of human needs and attempts to alleviate relative deprivation and access to resources in the area. This thesis also reviews negotiated peace agreements and their failures when it comes to water allocation plans, with specific examples such as the Wazzani Spring water pumping station.
