Dr Sabina Lawreniuk (School of Geography) is a member of the Rights Lab's Business and Economies programme, where she focuses on gender, work and activism in Cambodia's garment industry. She is a Nottingham Research Fellow, and previously was a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London where her fellowship's research proposed an innovative worker-centred geography of the ethics of production in global garments supply chains. She has worked extensively with policy and practice communities, conducting research for NGOs including ActionAid, Save the Children, Care, and Transparency International in Cambodia. She is currently working on a UKRI/GCRF-funded project about social protection and the gendered impacts of COVID-19 in Cambodia, which is tracking the experiences and coping mechanisms of women workers as they navigate the financial repercussions of the pandemic for the global garment industry.
