Dr Sabina Lawreniuk

Personal profile

I am currently (2017-2020) a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London.

My Leverhulme project brings a feminist geopolitical approach to the study of work, inequality and activism in the Cambodian garment sector. Through an in-depth institutional ethnography of a Cambodian trade union, my research proposes an innovative worker-centred geography of the ethics of production in global garments supply chains. Three strands of research explore the ‘local’ moral norms that create different experiences of work; the institutional trade union processes that reconcile these in collective strategy; and the consequent capacity of different groups of workers to shape supply chain structures.

Recent work has been published in Political Geography, Environment and Planning A, and Mobilities.

Beyond academia, I have considerable experience working with policy and practice communities, conducting research for NGOs including ActionAid, Save the Children, Care, and Transparency International in Cambodia.
