Cambodia banner-01

The EENA in Cambodia was undertaken between August and December 2013 by the Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC).

The research found that the right to form CSOs is legally guaranteed and there were about 1,350 active, registered CSOs. However, CSOs were not considered strategic partners by the government which has led to some being threatened and suspended, mainly human rights focused CSOs.  The draft Law on Associations and Non-Governmental Organizations (LANGO) also contains restrictive provisions and will lead to increased government interference and control of CSOs. This environment of intimidation has also affected the Cambodian press which has experienced a crackdown on freedom of expression and peaceful assembly since 2012.  

The full EENA Cambodia report is available in English and Khmer
