Our work in Cambodia focuses on the next generation of decision-makers through cooperation with universities and judicial training academies. This brief share the lessons learned in setting up and running the programme. It outlines the main success factors and the results achieved so far.
This work in Cambodia is highly relevant, keeping in mind that the entire educational system was ruined during the Khmer Rouge between 1975 and 1979, and the fact that over 70% of the Cambodian population is below 30 years of age. Since 2013, we have been implementing a five-year human rights capacity development programme aimed at strengthening the environment for human rights promotion and protection in Cambodia. The programme is fully funded by Swedish Development Cooperation.
