In Brief: Conference aims to educate youth

This year's International Peace Conference, organised by Youth for Peace, will be held in Siem Reap from September 18-24, with 320 participants from Cambodia and neighbouring countries, as well as from Rwanda, Morocco, Guatemala and Peru. Youth and reconciliation is the conference's driving agenda, which organisers say "is well-timed, as Cambodia is just now emerging from almost 30 years of civil war and genocide." One objective is to "improve youth's understanding of the history related to genocide, mass killing, and the root causes of genocide", and there will be debates about what should be taught in schools about Khmer Rouge history.
