Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Royal Holloway

A researcher of Cambodian livelihoods since 2008, Laurie Parsons has conducted large-scale projects examining inequalities in Cambodia’s economic development for Transparency International, Plan International, Save the Children, CARE International, ActionAid, the IDRC and the Royal University of Phnom Penh, among others.


His academic research investigates the impact of mass labour migration and ecological change on the culture and social structures of Cambodia. It combines a variety of approaches - including visual and statistical analysis of social networks, and qualitative methods - to discern how traditional modes of association both reflect and mediate these new conditions.
