Special issue of Water on human rights to water and sanitation – call for contributions

For an upcoming special issue, the scientific journal Water is welcoming submissions of full research articles, reviews, as well as shorter commentary on the human rights to water and sanitation.

“This issue seeks to capture the most up-to-date research and practices,” says co-editor Dr Alejandro Jiménez, Programme Director Water Governance at SIWI.

The special issue, edited by Dr Alejandro Jiménez and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation, Dr Leo Heller, focuses on discussing and disseminating existing practices in realizing these rights.

“We would therefore like to call for original papers from researchers, practitioners, regulators, and decision-makers about their contributions to the realization of these human rights and their intellectual reflections about the topic, from different perspectives,” Dr Alejandro Jiménez explains.

Submissions are open until 30 November 2019. To find out more and submit your contribution, visit the SIWI website »
