Andrea Haefner holds a PhD from Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia focusing on transboundary river basins. More broadly, her research looks at the salient changes in the Asia Pacific‘s security patterns and the rise of non-traditional security issues on the region’s security agenda, especially regarding environmental security and water governance.

Andrea’s recently published book ‘Negotiating for Water Resources: Bridging Transboundary River Basins’ focuses on the Mekong, Danube and La Plata River Basins. Andrea Haefner currently works as Lecturer at Griffith University, after working over the last 3 years in Southeast Asia, including working as Water Resources Management Advisor at the National University of Laos and as Research and Evaluation Adviser for the Australian aid program in Laos.
