Palgrave Studies in Water Governance

The Geneva Water Hub is proudly coordinating and co-branding with Palgrave-Macmillan publisher the new series “Palgrave Studies in Water Governance”.

Looking at the issues of water governance through the perspective of the social sciences, books in the Palgrave Series in Water Governance take a global perspective on one of the key challenges facing society today: the sustainable development of water resources and services for all. In stepping away from the focus on engineering and geophysics, the series takes a more holistic approach to both consolidate and generate knowledge that can be applied to different geographic areas by academics, researchers, policy-makers, NGOs and the private sector. This series emphasises the link between science and policy through considering water as a socio-ecological system, water and the territoriality of action, and water in the context of conflicts.

The co-editors of the series (Prof Christian Bréthaut and Dr Thomas Bolognesi, University of Geneva) are happy to consider any proposal.

The first two contributions to the series are now available:

“A Critical Approach to International Water Management Trends - Policy and Practice.”


(Edited Volume, Editors Christian Bréthaut & Rémi Schweizer)


“Modernization and Urban Water Governance - Organizational Change and Sustainability in Europe.”


(Monography authored by Thomas Bolognesi)
