Property and the right to water : toward a non-liberal commons.

Schmidt, Jeremy J. and Mitchell, Kyle R. (2014) 'Property and the right to water : toward a non-liberal commons.', Review of radical political economics., 46 (1). pp. 54-69.

Abstract

This paper examines the turn to considerations of property in arguments regarding the commons and the human right to water. It identifies commitments to liberalism in political economy approaches to property and human rights and develops a matrix for identifying non-liberal conceptions of the commons. The latter holds potential for an agonistic politics in which human rights are compatible with ecological sensibilities regarding the dynamics of conflict and cooperation in complex systems.
