The theoretical and socio-political project of the alliance consists of comparative research in various countries in latin America, but also in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. These cases follow a similar terms of reference and in order to allow for comparison between the cases, a common conceptual framework is developed between the partners. The central questions that guide the research done by the Justicia Hidrica Alliance are as follows:  

  •  [Accumulation] In what way are water and water rights divided in cuantitative and qualitative terms? What are the historical processes and mechanisms that lead to a certain water and water rights distribution between users and sectors?
  • [Conflicts] What characterises the water conflicts, with regard to contents, mechanisms, structural contradictions, positive/negative functions, dynamic and longitudinal character and possible results or solutions, and how did they emerge and develop?
  • [Strategies from Civil Society] What are the opportunities to develop multi-scale strategies for grassroot organisations and civil society actors in order to be able to combat injustice in water?
