Abstract

The formal representation for legal or other narratives as introduced by Nissan (2001; 2002; 2003a; 2003b; 2003c; 2003d) is adapted to the analysis of a case study in WaterTime, a project developed by David Hall and his collaborators in view of the development of a decision model for policy making, concerning the privatization of city water systems throughout the European Union. In WaterTime, the experience of several cities is analyzed and compared. In particular, Hall and Lobina (2001) have analyzed the privatization, in 1989, of the city water system in Grenoble, France. Eventually, corruption was proven, and the system was partly remunicipalized; court decisions led to its full remunicipalization. We sketch a symbolic representation of events in this narrative.
