Résumé
In this thesis I argue that the utility of employing the human right to water within discussions of water security is intimately related to the population under consideration, such that its use can be more or less effective depending on whose water security one is considering. This is owed to the fact that employing the human right to water in discussions of water security is useful only in the case of states that are able to satisfy the conditions necessary for the successful implementation of the human right to water as a positive legal right : i) being possessed of adequate amounts of the resource in question, ii) being possessed of the political willingness to provide the resource, and iii) being possessed of the capacity, including the infrastructure, to supply the end user with the resource
