This project seeks to understand the dynamics of crisis governance through the case of Cape Town’s water crisis. Water has always been scarce in Cape Town, and the difference between who has access to clean drinking water and who does not, is linked to its historical context of apartheid.
The theoretical framework on flexible governance by Brian Martin (2013) provides the basis for understanding crisis governance. Moreover, Henrik Vigh’s (2008) concept of crisis and chronicity is used to elaborate of the chronicity of the water crisis. It moreover, provides the basis for analysing crisis as context. The project concludes that the dynamics of equity, context and chronicity should be considered when understanding crisis governance.
