Hydrohegemony Hydro-hegemony is hegemony at the river basin level, achieved through water resource control strategies such as resource capture, integration and containment – Zeitoun & Warner • Riparian position • Military or economic power • Exploitation potential infrastructure & technology

Environmental Peacebuilding • • • • • • • Common ground of a shared environment Resource driven war vs. resource driven peace Cooperative benefits and strategic interests Hegemonic asymmetry vs. equal counterparts Altruism vs. Selfishness for human survival Emphasis on technocracy and rational choice Transformation of conflict and trauma

Colonial-logics “All remnants of colonial or neo-colonial thought in world politics and multiple rationalities that drive the rational choice of powerful militarised countries to exploit the planet’s natural resources whilst disregarding the human rights and ownership of those at local level who are directly dependant on those resources”.

Deconstruction of colonial-logics • Democratic liberal peacebuilding theory • Rational choice for collective action theory • Realism and liberalism perpetuates domination (Jabri) • Empirical studies of “domination dressed up as cooperation” (Selby) • Local level cases of hydrohegemony and counter-hegemony
