Rights, Governance and Culture in Sustainable Access to Water
Study Abroad in Spain, Summer 2012
Water issues in Spain are vivid and pressing, involving questions of fairness and sustainability. There is a new focus on the impact of water institutions as part of the social fabric and as important structures in the country’s physical and social landscapes. In this program, we will be studying examples from a number of countries that illustrate the challenges of achieving and maintaining just, sustainable and environmentally sound water allocation, but we will come to understand the Spanish countryside in particular as we study the global challenges of water justice and environmental sustainability. An extended field trip with European water rights specialists is an integral part of the course.
