Lack of access to clean water is an urgent problem in developing
countries, including Vietnam. This book investigates the ‚everyday
politics‘ of domestic water supply and sanitation in the rural Mekong
Delta. The author offers new theoretical perspectives on policy making in
Vietnam as well as the cultural aspects of globalisation. She shows that
policy practices have to be understood as mechanisms for the
(re-)production of a political order, manifest in the cultural and social
properties of the Vietnamese state. The book provides a critical
perspective on donor support to Vietnamese water policy and practice.
