CALL FOR PAPERS: Water Commons: Devising Diverse Solutions (Special Issue of Water International)

This Special Issue is inspired by the 2011 meeting of the International Association for the Study of Commons in which issues of the commons with respect to agricultural water received special attention. The Special Issue seeks a set of papers to address the interrelated issues of configuring and re-configuring water governance to diverse and changing situations and goals. Papers may look at how approaches have been or could be customized to fit particular contexts, particularly where the framing of problems, exploration of solutions, and views about what would be considered success or failure are often contested and negotiated over time. Authors will share research findings and ideas that can inform the work of those studying and managing shared water resources. Topics to be addressed may include:

Water International Special Journal Issue: July 2013
Water Commons: Devising Diverse Solutions

Everisto Mapedza: International Water Management Institute (IWMI)
Bryan Bruns: Consulting Sociologist
Mark Giordano: International Water Management Institute (IWMI)


Communications should be sent to with copies to and MARK.GIORDANO@CGIAR.ORG.

Deadline: September 30, 2011
