Cambodia Towards the 2018 Elections: Politics and the Current Human Rights Scenario

After the national assembly elections in Cambodia in 2013, the human rights situation in the country deteriorated rapidly. Now, as the next general elections slowly inch closer, the human rights situation is once again in focus, with UN human rights experts recently urging the Cambodian government to protect civil society and respect fundamental freedoms in the country. In this seminar, Naly Pilorge, the director of the Cambodian human rights organisation LICADHO, will give a presentation on the current political and human rights situation in Cambodia.

Since its establishment in 1992, LICADHO has worked to protect civil, political, economic and social rights in Cambodia. LICADHO also seeks to monitor the government through its human rights programmes. Its main office is in the capital Phnom Penh.

Naly Pilorge is the director of the Cambodian League for the Promotion and Defence of Human Rights, LICADHO.
