Project Description



RIVERS’s main challenge is to produce ground-breaking knowledge, from an empirical, interdisciplinary and dialogic perspective, about the contentions and challenges intrinsic to reconceptualising human rights with different ways of understanding and relating to water. RIVERS’s overarching research question is: To what extent can international human rights law come to grips with plurilegal water realities? This project engages with one of the most pressing questions of this century: the relationship between humans and “nature”. RIVERS tackles two intertwined core objectives: 1) analysing different ways of knowing and relating to water and life among indigenous peoples and their understanding of its (potential)

violation by extractive projects; 2) discussing the contributions, challenges and pitfalls of interlegal translation of differing water natures in plurilegal encounters at domestic and international levels. RIVERS will develop a multi-sited analysis and empirical case-studies in three contexts: Colombia, Nepal and the United Nations human rights protection system. RIVERS follows two interrelated research streams: I) indigenous visions/practices: beyond water as a natural resource and a human right; and II) the UN human rights system: towards counter-hegemonic water knowledge and norm production. The RS will be operationalised through four mutually reinforcing work packages: WP-A) unveiling and grasping indigenous water knowledges and ontologies; WP-B) interlegal translation in court: anthropological expert testimonies; WP-C) human rights treaty bodies: water knowledge and norm production; and WP-D) universal human rights and international indigenous knowledge brokers.
