RIVERS (2019-2024) is a research project that aims to produce ground-breaking knowledge, from an empirical, interdisciplinary and dialoguing perspective, about the contentions and challenges intrinsic to reconceptualising human rights with different ways of understanding and relating to water. The project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC), coordinated by Lieselotte Viaene and hosted in the Department of Social Sciences, at Carlos III University of Madrid.
