Der Tempel-Streit zwischen Kambodscha und Thailand

Weitgehend unbemerkt von der Weltöffentlichkeit stehen sich an der kambodschanisch-thailändischen Grenze derzeit militärische Truppen gegenüber. Der auf beiden Seiten sehr emotional gehandhabte Konflikt schwelt bereits seit vielen Jahrzehnten und droht nun – im Angesicht gespannter innenpolitischer Konfliktlinien in Thailand und den Parlamentswahlen in Kambodscha – ein bisher unbekanntes kritisches Ausmaß zu erreichen.

Khmer Rouge Leaders Before the Court

erschienen in "DIE WELT" vom 21. November 2007

Genocide and crimes against humanity – these are the crimes alleged to the former chief of the torture prison S 21 of the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh. Kaing Guek Eav, better known as “Duch”, is the first former Khmer Rouge leader to be heard before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). “Duch” claims human rights reasons in requesting his release from detention.

Cambodian Employment and Labor Law

This Khmer-edition of the textbook on the Labor Law of Cambodia is part of the ongoing effort to provide students, professors, lawyers, judges, arbitrators and other interested parties with an authoritative textbook on the labor law of Cambodia, based on an analysis of the relevant provisions of the labor law, implementing regulations and additional background materials. For the first time awards of the Arbitration Council and judgments of the civil courts are discussed as well. The text will focus on the labor laws and practices in other countries.

Decentralization In Cambodia

Stuttgart’s Governing Mayor Advises Cambodia

Cambodia has always had a centralist government system in its history. Since 1994 the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation has provided policy consultancy and capacity building on democratic decentralization to the Royal Cambodian Government. First successes were achieved quickly: the first local council elections were held in 2002, marking the beginning of ”local self-administration”. Since then efforts have been made to introduce democratic structures at district and province levels as well. The political debate has been controversial and progress slow. In August 2007 the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation invited Dr. Schuster, the Governing Mayor of the City of Stuttgart, to assist in this endeavor.

Club of Cambodian Journalists Goes Online

by Saskia Ellenbeck, published in KAS International 2/2007

The biggest Cambodian journalists' association “Club of Cambodian Journalists” (CCJ) went online with its own website supported by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAF). What wouldn't cause a stir in Europe is a remarkable step in Cambodia as the computer- and internet-skills of Cambodians are still on a very low level.

Climate Change – Public Awareness and Government Policies in Cambodia

von Wolfgang Meyer, Landesbeauftragter der KAS Kambodscha

Only Government Ministries and few researchers in Cambodia involve themselves in a substantive debate about world climate change and the contributions the Kingdom of Cambodia could make to reducing further global warming. Yet, also the general public is aware of changes in the climate regime and its adverse effects on the livelihood of agriculturalists.
