Alice Beban is a PhD candidate in the Department of Development Sociology at Cornell University in New York. Her PhD seeks to understand the role of contemporary land reform in state building and in promoting sustainable rural livelihoods in rural Cambodia. As part of a research team at the Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace (CICP), she is also currently working on a project on human security and land rights in Cambodia. She started traveling and working in Cambodia in 2005 and has conducted research in Cambodia on organic agriculture development projects, local-level responses to land appropriation, and land reform. She has also spent several years working in other countries in Asia and in New Zealand, where she conducted research on social and environmental justice issues in the Asia-Pacific. Her master’s degree in international development studies at Massey University in New Zealand was funded by a Sylff fellowship (2007).
