Vertically-Integrated Project on the Human Right to Water and Sanitation

Two of our LLM Human Rights Law students, Nerissa Drennan and Morvern Rennie, have been offered the opportunity to represent the School of Law in a University-wide project. 

The Gates Foundation ‘Toilet Challenge’ offers the potential for students in a Vertically Integrated Project, bringing together students in 7 Departments across the University’s 4 Faculties, to develop a better understanding of how pan-disciplinary approaches to the Global Sanitation Challenge might be developed that are economically sustainable and socially appropriate. Nerissa and Morvern will each contribute complementary pieces of research linked to the Human Right to Water and Sanitation, supervised by Dr Francesco Sindico.
