The Documentation Center of Cambodia expands its outreach

The Documentation Center of Cambodia is continuing its efforts to keep the public engaged with the Khmer Rouge tribunal, the organisation said yesterday.

Through visits to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, and to historical sites associated with a regime that killed nearly two million people, the centre hopes to keep Cambodians informed about the justice process.

“Given the limited literacy and media access among Cambodians, efforts to facilitate their participation require carefully tailored efforts to meaningfully engage with the ECCC process,” DC-Cam said.

Although the program is not new, recent developments at the court have provided the forums with ample material for discussion and debate.

In September, when the Khmer Rouge tribunal freed Ieng Thirith, Pol Pot’s social affairs minister, DC-Cam responded by hosting a public forum among schoolchildren, many of whom were hearing of Thirith for the first time.
