Bibliography - “What is hydropolitics? Examining the meaning of an evolving field”
The study of hydropolitics is relatively young and ‘borrows’ concepts from other well-established disciplines such as political science, geography, or sociology. The roots of this nascent but blossoming research arena date back only to the late 1970s. As with any new field of study, there is much conceptual fuzziness surrounding hydropolitics. For instance, to this day, no single, universal definition of hydropolitics exists and is unlikely to be established any time soon.
Following is a selection of major peer-reviewed contributions that deal with the definition of hydropolitics. The selected contributions are ordered chronologically and give a specific insight into the evolution of this definition. Furthermore, for each contribution, a brief comment is provided to facilitate users’ reading.
