    This dissertation is about water governance and institutional change. The focus on water governance means that we are interested in collective action with respect to water issues, which is not restricted to government action by public authorities, but includes involvement and participative action by private stakeholders. Furthermore, it means that we are not only interested in the `action aspect¿ of collective action, but also in the complexity of the institutional context in which collective action is embedded and achieved. The focus on institutional change means that we are interested in the evolution of the public domain, the interaction with the private domain, and the shifting boundaries of the public/private divide.
