RWI-supported Researcher Publishes New Article on Khmer Rouge

Ratana Ly, who is a RWI-supported researcher at the Centre for the Study of Humanitarian Law (CSHL) at Royal University of Law and Economics, recently published an article titled “Prosecuting the Khmer Rouge: Views from the Inside”, published by the International Nuremberg Principles Academy.

Ratana Ly has participated in numerous RWI initiatives, including the Institute’s first regional research Initiative in 2014 where she received training and mentorship on human rights research for a year.

She has since then visited RWI’s office in Lund, Sweden where she met with the Institutes researchers and gave a presentation on her research on the Australian-Cambodian Refugee agreement. Ratana is frequently used as a lecturer by RWI in different courses and activities.

Ratana says the paper aims to examine and compare attitudes of different stakeholders on whether they accept or reject the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), and the reasons for any differences in attitudes toward the ECCC.”

“This paper could not have been completed without the support from RWI and the International Nuremberg Principles Academy,” she says. “I took part in the RWI Research Initiative back in 2014, during which I received intensive research training and wrote and presented my first academic paper at an international conference. Through RWI’s further support to my workplace, I have been able to increasingly build up my research capacity and professionalism.”
