Call for contribution to a special issue of Water journal

This is a call for original papers from researchers, practitioners, regulators, and decision-makers about their contributions to the realization of the human rights to water and sanitation and their intellectual reflections about the topic, from different perspectives.

The aim is for papers that discuss theoretical approaches, legal and institutional frameworks, and case studies related to those rights, highlighting the normative content of the rights and principles of the human rights. Contributions that address how to increase accountability, achieve gender equality, enable meaningful participation, or ensure non-discrimination are welcomed.

Full research articles, reviews, as well as shorter commentary/communications from practitioners are welcome.
