Research and writing a book about governmental and non-governmental initiatives on migration between Cambodia and Thailand, and the impact on the migrants themselves.

Safe Migration is an ethnography of migration and development in Southeast Asia. Based on six months of multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Thailand and Cambodia, and informed by over a decade of humanistic research in migrant sending communities, this book explores the intensifying efforts to order, regulate, and manage migration in Southeast Asia. The book has two central goals: first, it aims to complicate development discourses that conflate regular migration with safe migration. In doing so, it also draws attention to changing migration dynamics in the Global South, and describe how intensified entanglements with formal institutions (states, NGOs, and financial institutions) can generate new costs and risks for both migrants and their families at home. NEH funding will be used to provide support for two months of writing, allowing me time to complete a finalized manuscript of the book.
