The post-doctoral researcher will work with Julie Trottier within the project The Paracommons of Palestinian Water, funded by AFD. He/she will be a member of the research unit PRODIG. This project explores the present governance of the paracommons of Palestinian water. It explores the manner existing bundles of rights within water commons can be harnessed to elaborate a deliberative and equitable governance of the paracommons. The term governance is understood here as the set of social and political interactions that maintain or transform the bundles of rights that direct water towards a given trajectory. The Common Property Movement focused on the economic dimensions of common property resources management. The paracommons approach focused on the technical aspects and the measurement of the trajectories of resources. This project focuses on the political dimension of the construction and transformation of the commons.

Work Context

The Research Unit PRODIG incorporates the CNRS, Universities Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Paris Diderot, IRD and AgroParisTech, in partnership with Sorbonne University.
The 2019-2023 project of PRODIG is focused on analyzing the interactions between development and the environment. This research is carried out within a comparative and multi scalar perspective, with a specific attention to the local impacts of neoliberal globalisation and global changes (climate change, demographic growth, urbanisation, natural resources degradation, migrations) within a great diversity of space (rural and agricultural, urban and peri urban, mountainous, islands and coastlines), mostly in the global South, but also in the North (mainly France). Our project combines three approaches at the intersection of the disciplines within the unit (human and physical geography, agronomy, agroeconomy, political science, sociology, economics and urbanism):
- the interaction between social and environmental issues using approaches from social sciences and natural sciences et the deployment of both quantitative an quantitative methods;
- a multiscalar analysis of urban and economic development processes, especially in the South, in relation with contemporary global change ;
- a cross cutting interrogation of all of these themes on regional development, normative construction and circulation and power interactions.
