In her PhD thesis in International Relations/Political Science Saba Joshi studies the contemporary politics of land grabbing in Cambodia with a tripartite focus on gender, resistance and state formation. Drawing on fieldwork that she conducted between 2015 and 2019, Saba Joshi examines contestation against large-scale land acquisitions, gendered experiences of dispossession and resistance, and how the politics of land grabbing are refracted through processes of political transition to authoritarianism in Cambodia.
