Jeremy Schmidt is an expert in water management, ethics and environmental governance. His research focuses on water issues, highlighting the role played by anthropologists and geographers in shaping global water governance. Schmidt’s work has been foundational in establishing the field of water ethics: his findings are the first to explicitly link the use of the social sciences by North American policy-makers to the water challenges faced in jurisdictions like Alberta, where his fieldwork is focused.
