Astrid Norén-Nilsson is an Associate Senior Lecturer at the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies at Lund University since 2016. She received her Ph.D. in Politics & International Studies (2013) from the University of Cambridge, U.K., where she was a Gates Scholar. She was a research fellow at the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), Leiden, the Netherlands, 2013-15. Since 2015, she serves as Vice-President of the Cambodian Institute for Strategic Studies (CISS). Her scholarship focuses on the politics of Cambodia in the post-conflict reconstruction era (1993 -). She is the author of the monograph Cambodia’s Second Kingdom: Nation, Imagination, and Democracy (Cornell SEAP, 2016). She has published on themes related to the development of Cambodia’s fragile democracy, addressing in particular the role of nationalist imaginings in shaping the era of multi-party elections, as well as the role of transforming perceptions of the current neopatrimonial order and of citizenship.  Her research interests include democratic change, nationalism, the politics of memory, and emerging notions of citizenship and social change in South-East Asia.
