SOCY 173X — Water and Sanitation Justice

Course creators: Ben Crow, Isha Ray, Kirsten Rudestam, Abigail Brown, Carolina Balazs

This course will explore the many manifestations of water and sanitation justice and injustice on interlocking scales (i.e. local, national, transnational) while illustrating analytical ideas connecting to a range of social processes including claims for human rights, deprivation and exclusion, urbanization and infrastructure development, and privatization of land and water. We will look at various case studies in high-income and low-income countries and use key technical and social concepts to examine rights, equity, and justice with respect to water and sanitation.
