Abstract

This chapter traces way in which a basic necessity such as water is governed by changing mixes of public and private sector provision. It maps a recent move towards private sector provision which has generated extensive conflict, and explores how this conflict is gradually being routinised both at the global level, and in national contexts such as South Africa and New Zealand. The chapter discusses the importance of 'unruly consumers' as a catalyst for breaking open new trajectories of routinisation that could provide a stable and more inclusive basis for future water governance policy.
