Welcome to LIFT issue 55

We’re looking at how stories are told, and speculating on what stories will be told in the years to come in this week’s edition of Lift.

Our cover story is an investigation into the state of Khmer drama (10),  a rarely seen art form that was once an institution in the Kingdom.

Most of us have read about theatre and seen photos, many have seen a performance at some time or another, but considering it was one of the main methods for telling our history, theatre has fallen a long way. Our reporters find out where it has gone, exactly, and what that means.

Our second feature looks at the NGO draft law and the repercussions it will have on those of us who are considering a career in the nonprofit sector (6). In a related story, we look at the restrictions being proposed on assembly, and the activities of student groups might be curbed as a result (13).

As always, Kounila Keo makes an argument that is tough to refute in this week’s column about why women don’t hold sway in the Kingdom (5). And everything else! Hope you enjoy reading as much as we enjoyed creating!
