dc.description.abstract This thesis looks at water privatization initiatives, and particularly concessions, in Latin America from the perspective of structural violence. Ten cases are evaluated and two (Cartagena, Colombia and Tucuman, Argentina) are looked at in greater detail. The goal of this thesis is to gain a different perspective and definition on how ‘success’ is defined in water privatization initiatives. My findings guide me to a new definition: ‘Success’ in the status quo fundamentally lacks public participation and consultation, possesses inappropriate subsidies and insufficient efforts to connect illegal settlements, does not guarantee access to water and fails to make adequate conservation efforts that are not financially viable.
