© Schéma Luke Whaley
Institutions are central to understanding how water is governed, managed, accessed and used. Yet exactly what institutions are and how they function differs according to the theoretical lens through which you view them. In this talk I discuss the approach I take, called ‘critical institutionalism’. Firstly, I will outline the emergence of critical institutionalism as a school of thought. Then I will consider it in the context of my own work on water governance – including research in Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda, and the UK. I finish by reflecting on future directions for critical institutionalism, which I hope to contribute to as a new IRD researcher at G-EAU.
