Interesting call for papers
Authors from Southeast Asia are most welcome.
The Journal is looking for articles that address the following issues:
- The commercialisation and privatisation of water: which actors dominate the water market, how is this connected to free trade agreements, how is the flood of plastic bottles changing Southeast Asia etc.?
- Urban water problems: why don’t urban water supply and sewage systems work, although there is enough water in Southeast Asia?
- What is the cultural significance of life with, near and on water?
- Water as a trade route: rivers, the Straits of Malacca, geopolitical control etc?
- The ocean as a resource space: fishery conflicts, oil, deep sea mining
- The political ecology of water pollution: polluters, regulation and movements
- The politicisation of dam projects: actors, impacts and movements
- Floods and droughts: how are these socially produced?
- How does climate change impact regional water regimes and weather patterns (typhoons and other catastrophes) and how do states and municipalities react to the danger of sinking cities and regions?
