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."

Conversations in Conflict Studies with Professor Tina Nabatchi

"Public Participation for 21st Century Democracy: Rethinking our Civic Infrastructures.”  Tina Nabatchi, Associate Professor in Public Administration and International Affairs at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University. Democracy is often described as ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people.’ We can easily recognize how representative democracy deals with the ‘of’ and ‘for’ – but where are we when it comes to ‘by’? What could government and residents gain in terms of better public policy and more effective program and service delivery if we encouraged and harnessed the many voices of ordinary people? Filled with examples, this presentation explores the forms of public participation, and explains how giving good process, activating local leaders and networks, using the building blocks of participation, and providing systemic supports can help us rethink our local civic infrastructures and advance governance for 21st century democracy.

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served.
