Seminar: L. Harris, ‘Tapping’ into state-society linkages: looking at perceptions of the state through the lens of water access


Dr. Leila Harris recently gave a seminar at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies (STIAS), where she is currently a Fellow.

Dr. Harris presented on her current collaborative project within UBC, with the goal of publishing it as a book. The project is based on ongoing work with students from UBC, and colleagues from other institutions and non-governmental organisations, and is based on fieldwork, surveys, interviews and focus groups conducted in underserved areas of Cape Town, South Africa and Accra, Ghana; as well as with government officials, activists and others engaged with the questions of water access and governance in these sites. The work is both qualitative and quantitative, has included a participatory video project, and has a number of student theses associated with it to date.

Please see the “Publications” page for the complete list of associated research.
