Caroline Bennett

Lecturer in Social Anthropology, University of Sussex

Caroline Bennett is a socio-cultural anthropologist, whose work addresses issues of conflict and violence. Having previously worked as a forensic anthropologist in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iraq, her work considers the intersection of academic analysis with practical experience to explore issues of international interventions, human rights, and geopolitics. Her current research explores mass graves from the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, and considers post-conflict politics in Cambodia.
