Seminário “Can we hear what the river whispers? Water, human rights and indigenous knowledges: ontological conflicts” Lieselotte Viaene (CES)

El Seminário “Can we hear what the river whispers? Water, human rights and indigenous knowledges: ontological conflicts” con la participación de Lieselotte Viaene (CES) se llevará a cabo el 21 de marzo de 2017, en el CES de la Universidad de Coimbra.

Water, as the source of life, is at the epicentre of major socio-environmental conflicts in different locations in the world generating multiple human rights violations to local communities disproportionally affecting ethnic, indigenous and Afro-descendant groups. These conflicts arise in response to the hegemonic neoliberal development model marked by the rapid expansion of extractive projects of natural resources, where water is conceived as a strategic natural resource malleable to human needs. Moreover, these conflicts are unfolding in contexts of historical power inequalities, legacies of colonialism, and historical and contemporary race and gender discrimination. In turn, ethnic, indigenous and Afro-descendant groups around the world claim a different human-nature relationship which breaks through dominant scientific and neoliberal knowledge demonstrating alternative ways of knowing, living and being. In the midst of this context, in 2010, the United Nations General Assembly explicitly recognized “the human right to water” as essential to the full enjoyment of life and all other human rights. As this is considered a “new” human right, it is to be expected that international, regional and domestic jurisprudence will further elaborate its contours.
