"Beyond the Khmer Rouge Tribunal: Addressing the Lack of Reconciliation at the Community Level"

Research Colloquium May Sessio

Research Colloquium is a 6-months public seminar, co-organized by KAS Cambodia and Paragon International University, that gathers researchers from the field of social science to engage in an interactive environment on ongoing research projects in Cambodia.

Details

1.7 million people died from starvation, overwork, torture, and execution under the Khmer Rouge regime between 1975 and 1979. While the Extraordinary Chambers in Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) has put the Khmer Rouge leaders on trial for these crimes,their low-level cadres live in the midst of victims.

This research attempts to fill some gaps in literature on transitional justice that is taking place at the ECCC. The research examines how the ECCC lacks in its effort to deliver justice for the victims of the Khmer Rouge. In doing so, the research examines the limitations of justice. Limitations such as victim participation, reparations and personal jurisdiction are explored. Political interference in the ECCC process from the Cambodian government is reviewed. In this research, both primary and secondary sources will be gathered to frame discussion
and support analysis.

With this research topic, Research Colloquium is excited to welcome Mr. Sovann Mam, who will present his research paper on the topic of the "Beyond the Khmer Rouge Tribunal: Addressing the Lack of Reconciliation at the Community Level".

Join our event by getting yourself registered here by Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
