Sussex Asia Centre

Dr Anne-Meike Fechter

Meike’s research concerns migration and mobility in a broad sense, including mobile professionals and their families, and how relocation matters with regard to work, gender, kinship and the body. Her regional focus is Southeast Asia, and she has done fieldwork in Cambodia and Indonesia. Meike’s earlier research was concerned with corporate expatriates (Transnational Lives: Expatriates in Indonesia, 2007) and their families (Gender and Family among mobile professionals, 2007). She is currently researching the world of ‘Do it yourself-Aid’ in Cambodia, funded by a Leverhulme grant (2013-2015). Her most recent book is the collection, ‘The Personal and the Professional in Aid Work’ (2013).
