Priya has broad interests in issues of equity (particularly in the context of water) and in the political economy of community-based efforts in development and natural resource management.  Her most recent work is a review of the concept of 'right to water' in different discourses (human rights, state legislation related to water, and civil society initiatives), possible synergies between them, and the usefulness of the 'rights-framework' to analyze the impact of recent changes in the water sector.
