Rutgerd Boelens, Associate Professor irrigation and water management and Visiting Professor at the Catholic University of Peru, will talk about the problematic of the dominant paradigms in the sphere of irrigation and water management with respect to social justice and how communities have been able resist blueprints derived from these paradigms and devise their own alternatives.
