Dr. Katrin Travouillon is a Lecturer at the Department of Political and Social Change (Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, ANU). Her research centres on the discursive and affective dimension of political change in Cambodia after the UN Transitional Authority (UNTAC 1992-1993). She is particularly interested in how the liberal peacebuilding project has shaped political ideas, identities, and interactions between domestic and international actors. Since 2019, Dr. Travouillon is a member of the editorial team of the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, a publication committed to critical analysis of international interventions, focusing on interactions and practices that influence and transform states and societies. Her work has appeared in Contemporary Southeast Asia, Peacebuilding, and Review of International Studies, among others.
