Katie Foster is a graduate student in the Integrative Conservation and Anthropology Ph.D. program.
Her dissertation research explores the intersections of indigenous rights policy and environmental governance in Peru. This work combines ethnographic, institutional, and policy analyses to examine how policy at the international level gets transformed or "translated" as it gets implemented at lower levels of governance, and the implications of these transformations on local peoples and ecologies.
