On 11th June, CKS had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Gabriel Fauveaud in Phnom Penh for a presentation which contributed to an ongoing urban lecture series. His public lecture entitled “The Production of Urban Spaces in Phnom Penh: Toward a Social Geography of Real Estate,” focused on examining the effects of urbanization in our nation’s capital. Dr. Fauveaud will also examine the sustainability of urban development, examining effects of the privatization of urban production, rapidly changing urban lifestyles within the city and socio-economic relations within real estate.
