Description

This edited book presents eleven chapters addressing the politics of water in Latin America. It brings together contributions from members of the WATERLAT-GOBACIT Network (www.waterlat.org) from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Uruguay. In addition to academics, the contributors also include members of public sector and civil society organizations engaged in debates and activities connected with the democratisation of water politics. The title of the book reflects a concern with the historical processes of appropriation, control, distribution, etc., of water and water-based services, which can be examined as processes of water territorialization, which includes the territorialization of the production of knowledge about water. The chapters cover a range of empirical examples, from the impacts of large-scale water infrastructures and extractivist activities (mining, agribusinesses), the (mis)management of water-related risks and disasters, the complex and conflictive character of water management in metropolitan areas, the social and political struggles featuring social movements and other actors confronting powerful public and private interests in their quest to democratise water politics and management, among other issues.
