Abstract [en]

The human right to water and sanitation has been most commonly approached from the perspective of the machinery and mechanisms for its implementation. Perhaps the underlying assumption is that once action for implementation is undertaken, access to water and sanitation and hence realization of the right will be spontaneously achieved. Little attention has been drawn to the processes at the micro-level where such action for implementing the right takes place. This paper aims to propose a framework for understanding the micro-level processes at the ‘interface’ where the duty-bearing agents implementing action come face-to-face with the right-holders in the community who interpret the action within the context of their socio-cultural norms. This framework proposes that the actions for implementation are influenced by factors located in the ‘implementation context’ that is external to the right-holders’ community, while actual ‘realization’ of the right is ultimately influenced by factors situated in their ‘socio-cultural context’. The two contexts can in turn be understood as constituted of distinct ‘norm-triads’ comprising knowledge, will, and systemic conditions and possibilities. The framework is validated through an inter-disciplinary study in India where the respective norm-triads have been analysed.
