Juliet Willetts

Former Visiting Fellow

At UNRISD Juliet Willetts was undertaking research to further the role of the social and solidarity economy in reducing inequalities in access to water and sanitation services. This work built on her research on institutional and governance aspects of water and sanitation service delivery, including the roles of private and social enterprise and civil society organizations.

At the time of her stay at UNRISD, Juliet was Associate Professor and Research Director at Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), leading applied interdisciplinary research, analysis and evaluation. She holds an undergraduate double degree from University of Sydney and a doctorate from University of New South Wales. Her research engaged closely with policy and practice, addressing the human right to water and sanitation in the context of sustainable development, and combining socio-cultural, institutional and technical dimensions to facilitate change.
