Gabriel Fauveaud is a geographer who belong to the French laboratory PRODIG and the Sorbonne University. Since 2006, he works on the contemporary urban development / changes of Phnom-Penh. He started a Ph. D. in September 2008 based on the spatial expansion and the territorial transformation in Phnom-Penh. The purpose of his research is to understand the immovable properties strategies of the individual local actors and the foreign investors, as a “driving force” of the city changes. Beyond this, the response of the local authorities who face those fast transformations will be examined.
