HUMAN RIGHTS

A series of four lectures on human rights, aimed at educating and inspiring Cambodian youth was launched Wednesday at the Pannasastra University of Cambodia by Rafael Dochao Moreno, charge d' affaires of the Delegation of the European Commission (EC) to Cambodia. The lectures mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, celebrated on Human Rights Day on December 10. "Through these lectures, [students] will have the opportunity to hear about the EC's support of human rights in Cambodia," Moreno said. "We need to make sure that [Cambodia's tragic] past will not repeat itself."
