The Heinrich Böll Foundation established cooperation with partner organizations in Cambodia as early as 1993. Since then the office in Phnom Penh has served as a link among stakeholders in order to facilitate dialogue, joint learning and collaborative action on issues related to ecology and sustainable development, democracy, human rights and gender. Since the beginning of 2010, the office in Phnom Penh has become a Country Office. We work together closely with the Asia Desk of the head office in Berlin, as well as the HBF country offices in Bangkok/Thailand, Kabul/Afghanistan, Lahore/Pakistan, New Delhi/India and Beijing/China.

After two weeks of intense debate, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action had been drafted, a milestone in the promotion of women’s rights. Until this day, the Declaration is one of the most quoted human rights documents concerning women.

Welcome to the hbs Cambodia Website

The Heinrich Böll Foundation – Cambodia Country Office
The Heinrich Böll Foundation (also known as Heinrich Böll Stiftung) is part of the Green political movement that has developed worldwide as a response to the traditional politics of socialism, liberalism, and conservatism. Our namesake, the writer and Nobel Prize laureate Heinrich Böll, personified the values we stand for: freedom, civic courage, tolerance, open debate and the appreciation of art and culture as independent spheres of thought and action.

The headquarter of the Heinrich Böll Foundation is located in Berlin, Germany. Our international program is implemented through 32 offices worldwide, seven of them in Asia. 

Working closely with civil society groups since 1993, the Heinrich Böll Foundation was the first German political foundation to establish cooperation with partners in Cambodia. Building on past achievements, our current program focuses on two key areas for sustainable development of Cambodia: Resource Governance and Gender Democracy.
