Children’s right to water as a contested domain: Gendered reflections from India

Summary, in English

Nandita Singh and her colleagues look at children’s water

rights in India. They argue for the exercise of the right to water by

children by analysing the universal normative-legal framework and

its difference to the local socio-culturally defined framework. They

suggest that defining problems and designing actions only within

the normative-legal framework can obscure understanding the

critical realities at the right-holders’ end. They suggest that

interventions at various levels, such as through policy and targeted

programmes, have at best provided an ‘‘enabling environment’’,

but the process of implementation of children’s rights at the

right-holders’ end is to date an incomplete socio-cultural process
