Asia Research Brief #35 | Understanding trends in authoritarian populism by examining the crackdown on the Cambodian free press

In this latest Asia Research Brief, York Alumni and YCAR External Associates Laura Schoenberger (Banting Fellow, University of Ottawa) and Vanessa Lamb (Geography, University of Melbourne), along with co-writer Alice Beban (Sociology, Massey University), examine trends in authoritarian populism by examining the crackdown on the Cambodian free press.

Their study focuses on Cambodia’s crackdown on the free press in the lead up to their national election in 2017 in order to repress opposition. The work draws attention to the various scales and spaces in which authoritarianism is produced, enacted and imagined.
