New preliminary research report available for download here.
Based on two years of ESRC/DFID funded research in collaboration with the NGO Gender and Development/Cambodia and Dr Bunnak Poch, the report deepens understanding of why investments in domestic violence law are faltering and what action can be taken.
It is envisaged that the report will inform the country’s 2nd National Action Plan to Prevent Violence Against Women (NAPVAW) 2013–2017 led by the Ministry of Women’s Affairs and will help address concerns raised by the CEDAW 2013 Committee examination of Cambodia which found ‘limited progress in the prevention and elimination of violence against women’.
Feedback and other (media) enquiries are welcomed and should be directed to Katherine via the contact details on the front-page of this site.
To date the report’s findings have features in the Cambodian national press in The Phnom Penh Post and Cambodia Daily.
I will be speaking at the Center for Khmer Studies in Phnom Penh on February 3rd. Please see the flyer for further information.
Thanks to Bison Bison for the design of the report.
