Studying water as a transdisciplinary challenge, from environmental governance to knowledge and territorial politics
This workshop is intended to bring a space of dialogue for young researchers (PhD students, Postdoc…) working on issues related to water resources governance, commons, knowledge politics, territoriality, and justice. Indeed, water is often connecting various environmental challenges for example in the case of mining protests, social movements, urban-rural connections, or climate justice. Therefore, thinking about water as a transversal and connecting challenge in grassroots mobilizations, environmental movements and multi-actor partnerships can bring valuable insights to the academic debate. +INFO
