HH10Conference

The 10th Hydro-hegemony conference (HH10) discusses ‘The Power of Representation & the Representation of Power in Water Conflict and Cooperation’. The conference is co-organised by IHE Delft, Wageningen University & Research, King’s College London, the University of East Anglia, and the London Water Research Group, supported by the City of The Hague, the Netherlands. It will take place on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 October 2019 in the Humanity Hub, a venue within easy reach of Den Haag Central Station.

The HH10 conference provides a platform to discuss representation of interests and issues as well as representation through discourses, narratives and images. It will focus on the following two questions:

  • Who and what is (not) represented in transboundary water decision making?
  • How are transboundary water issues (re)presented?

More information can be found in the attached call for papers.

We invite researchers, students and practitioners to address these questions and submit:

  • a proposal for a 90-minute session including speakers with a word limit of 500 words, or
  • an abstract for a 15-20-minute paper presentation with a word limit of 300 words

Young researchers are especially encouraged to apply.

The deadline to submit your proposal or abstract is 31 July via https://forms.gle/q6MYKbzzi85yWk9w7

Participation to the conference is free, but registration is required. Please register here: https://forms.gle/TW1ZEjfEMshpH5RC6
