Julia Talbot-Jones is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Government, Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington. She has an interest in how social arrangements or structures, what economists call institutions, solve environmental and natural resource problems. Her research aims to understand how we, as a society, can better design and analyse institutions to the benefit of our environment, our economy, and our communities. A former NZ-US Fulbright scholar, her work bridges economics, ecology, and resource management. Julia leads the freshwater programme at Motu Economic and Public Policy Research.
