  • Many thanks to Robert Goodin, Mika LaVaque-Manty, Sharmila Murthy and Henry Shue for very helpful comments, as well as to the participants of a Radcliffe Exploratory Seminar on the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation at Harvard University and a colloquium at the University of Graz for their insights. I am also grateful to Charles Beitz for helpful conversations.
