Laura is interested in efforts to govern natural resources at the international and sub-national levels. Her doctoral work examines the influence of emerging international climate change instruments on the efforts of indigenous and traditional forest communities in Latin America to gain access to and control of land and territory. Laura currently focuses her work on a transnational coalition of Central American indigenous and traditional territorial groups seeking to address potential threats from – and opportunities presented by – the emergence of large-scale international programs related to deforestation.
