Abstract

This article examines intimate geopolitics of forced eviction and women's activism in Boeung Kak Lake—a high-profile community under threat in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It demonstrates that eviction is framed as a geopolitical issue, one that leads to innermost incursions into everyday life, one that has spurred on active citizenship and collective action evidencing the injustices of dispossession to diverse audiences, and one that has rendered female activists’ intimate relationships further vulnerable. In doing so, it charts how Boeung Kak Lake women have rewritten the political script in Cambodia by publicly contesting the inevitability accorded to human rights abuses in the post-genocide country
