Students to mark human rights day

Two hundred students from Phnom Penh and Kandal province are to gather on Wednesday at the National Assembly to mark Thursday’s International Human Rights Day. According to a statement released by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) on Monday, the event is aimed at encouraging young people to involve themselves in Cambodia’s democratic process. Students will be given the opportunity to ask questions of a panel of speakers at the gathering in the hope of creating a dialogue between different generations working toward creating a more secure future for the Kingdom, the statement said. The National Assembly is organising the event with support from the UNDP’s Legislature Assistance Project.
