Therese's current work focuses on analyzing the newly emergent field that we have come to call global water governance. Whereas water has traditionally been managed in the local context, there is now an urge for the management of water to being 'scaled up'. However, unlike the governance of water at lower levels, the global governance of water completely lacks a clear-cut definitive structure. This makes global water governance a challenging but yet interesting field of study, since it places the core questions of politics in the centre of the research: who governs and for what purpose?
