Women´s political role in Cambodia is hampered by gender based discrimination, but woman have much to say about local political issues. HBF, KAFDOC, Vigilanceand Highlanders Association have been supporting indigenous Lao and Khmer women from Mondulkiri, Ratanakiri, Kratie and Stung Teng provinces to meet and discuss issues affecting their participation in local politics.
Though a series of interviews filmed at a workshop in Kratie province in December 2008, this video explores the political problems faced by women in Cambodia, indigenous or Khmer, their visions about change and strategies that can allow them to gain a better share in governance.
The 2013 elections in Cambodia are hardly expected to be free and fair. In this dossier, we examine what this means for the future of the country. Through analyses, interviews, films and studies, we pursue a critical discussion about Cambodia’s development, and give a say to Cambodian and German representatives of civil society and politics.
