Sociology Speaker Series ft. Dr Leila Harris

Join us on January 21 for the Sociology Speaker Series, this time featuring Dr. Leila Harris, UBC. The human right to water (HRW) is a focus on ongoing promise, and considerable challenges. Focusing on the realities of underserved communities in Cape Town, South Africa and Accra, Ghana this talk considers key issues of equity, politics of the uneven implementation of the HRW and shifting state-society relations as important considerations to understand some of the contestation and potential of the HRW with respect to everyday narratives and lived realities.
