Sultana discusses the universal right to water on Princeton Environmental Institute podcast

"We need to democratize how water is managed and governed," says Farhana Sultana, associate professor of geography. "So that all voices are heard and much more ethical practices around water are pursued." Sultana was recently a guest on Princeton Environmental Institute's All for Earth podcast. Fundamentally, we need to "ensure that principles of equity collaboration and inclusivity are central to all of this," she adds. "Because we need to really have a better understanding of how water is very much a moral issue. And as a result that will help us think about much better transformations that are equitable and inclusive. In order to fight for water justice for all."

Presented by the Labor Studies Working Group.  Guest Speaker: Jeffrey Grabelsky, Associate Director, The Worker Institute at the Industrial and Labor Relations School at Cornell University.  

The Labor Studies Working Group is an interdisciplinary group of faculty members and graduate students from Syracuse University. The primary goal of the group is to institutionalize Labor Studies at SU and to elevate labor―broadly defined―as a topic of intellectual inquiry and social and political importance on campus. The group meets on a regular basis to discuss research concerning labor and employment and to spark conversation on these issues on campus and in the community.   
The Labor Studies Working Group organizes workshops on faculty and graduate student research and symposia which are designed to bring together leading labor scholars with activists and/or practitioners to explore pertinent issues facing workers and workers’ movements. If you are interested in helping to plan, organize, or attend labor studies group events, contact the coordinators: Professor Gretchen Purser, gwpurser@maxwell.syr.edu, 315.443.5848 and Professor Matt Huber, mthuber@maxwell.syr.edu, 315.443.3845.
