Maja Kirstine Dahl Jeppesen


My primary research interests are natural resource management, processes of privatization, state formation and the experienced consequences of development policies.

It is becoming an increasingly greater challenge to manage water effectively and distribute it equally in big cities in the global south, and many governments have turned to privatization or public-private partnerships to address these issues. I will study this tendency in my PhD project by exploring how the involvement of private actors and market logics in water provision in Nairobi, Kenya, affect the public authority of water governance actors as well as practices and norms concerning water provision in the city.
