Abstract In the past few years human right to water and sanitation have become one of the major locus of activity in the field of economic and social human rights. The growing importance of this particular area of human rights law is reflected not only in a rapidly increasing number of professional publications, studies, and reports dealing with this subject, but primarily in significantly more distinct actions undertaken by international organizations and humanitarian. Institutions. Just as right to food and right to adequate housing it determines appropriate functioning within the society and the access to more developed human rights. Human right to water and sanitation, classified among other economic and social human rights, seems to be much closer to us and more existential concept. Climate change and the continuing problems of many developing countries mean that access to water is increasingly becoming a privilege of the rich and not the right of every human being. Water has become a commodity in the bidding of armed conflict, and according to the forecasts in the near future may become the most common and primary cause of international armed conflicts. Water itself become more and more valuable resource and human rights violations in conflict calling for water are becoming increasingly common problem. This bibliography highlights academic publications relating to human right to water and sanitation that were published over the last 15 years. The entries are divided by type: books, chapters in edited volumes; journal articles and research papers. While not a comprehensive bibliography, the first four sections list approximately 150 references.
