Additional Information

The “Right to Water” conference is an interdisciplinary and international conference to elucidate strategic possibilities for ensuring equitable access to water worldwide. This event will explore how universal calls for the right to water articulate with local historical and geographical contexts. The event will engage an interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners and highlight key debates via keynote lectures and papers presented by leading figures from the academic, policy and activist communities. The conference promises to generate significant new insights into how to understand, recognize, and apply a human right to water in differing geographical contexts – and bring increased geographical sensitivity to calls for a universal right to water. A post-conference publication, in the form of an edited book, will seek to frame the key contributions and take these forward as a critical resource for future research and action.
