Andrea Marston was a member of EDGES and PoWG from 2010-2012, while she was obtaining her MA in Geography at UBC. Her research interests lie at the intersection of political economy, natural resource use/extraction, and land-based group identities. For her master’s thesis, Andrea examined community-managed water networks in periurban Cochabamba, Bolivia. She considered the merits and drawbacks of community water governance in relation to questions of autonomy, scale, and Bolivia’s putatively “post-neoliberal” turn.
