Summary
As globalization processes and related neoliberal agendas promote privatization through state action, people's struggles for rights to water have intensified. Set within this context, this book examines the role of the ambivalent state in local struggles for water, which are deeply intertwined with global forums, such as the World Water Forums and People's Water Forums, that support and/or challenge privatization of water resources. These local-global struggles have redefined the relationships between the state, corporations, and other social actors that impact the local politics of inequality and marginalization--back cover
