In this excerpt of the chapter we outline the economic, sociological, environmental and legal approaches with respect to water conflicts in Spain. These approaches are a necessary condition for a due debate on the current state of the art in water management. In summary, we show that Spain is a semiarid country with very rigid water management institutions. These institutions allocate water disregarding both recent European legislation and very basic tenets of economic rationality.
