My PhD project focuses on trajectories of peasant resistance to land acquisitions in north-east Cambodia.

Presentation: 

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science/International Relations at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, Switzerland. My doctoral research focuses on peasant resistance to large-scale land acquisitions in contemporary Cambodia. Using qualitative data collected over 15 months of field work in the country, my thesis examines how contestation over land is shaping political identities among women and indigenous minorities in Cambodia.  

Since 2015, I am also a Research Assistant in an academic research project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and Swiss Development Corporation titled DEMETER (Droits et Egalité pour une Meilleure Economie de la Terre), which studies the gendered impacts of land commercialization on food security and the right to food in Cambodia and Ghana.
