Accommodating Uncertainty by Bridging Fractures in War? Practices and Limits of Cross-Frontline Water Provision in the War in Eastern Ukraine, 2014-2019

Abstract : This draft article analyses the socio-economic relationships and behaviours of people living in the Donbas region in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine. Based on ethnographic fieldwork on the daily operation of a local Ukrainian drinking water authority that supplies populations caught in the “entre-deux” near the front line, this research studies the adaptation strategies implemented by employees of the company to ensure its operation despite security hazards. It employs the anthropological concept of liminality in order to explain how behaviours caught in the uncertainty of war can create new forms of cooperation and solidarity.
