Alexandra Kent is an Associate Professor of Social Anthropology at the Gothenburg Research Institute, Sweden. Her early work focused on religion and power in India and Malaysia. In 2002, she began working in Cambodia, where she has studied various efforts to recover moral order in the wake of the Khmer Rouge era of 1975-1979. These include studies of the revival of Buddhism, gender and religion, and the Khmer Rouge Tribunal. She is currently exploring the relationship between the Tribunal and Cambodians’ expectations and notions of justice. She has published widely, and also co-edited with Professor David Chandler the anthology ‘People of Virtue: Reconfiguring Religion, Power and Moral Order in Cambodia Today’.
