Sonja Alexandra Barwitzki

Program Assistant Intern (From June - August 2014)

I am working as a program assistant in the area of Gender Democracy and Human Rights. My main research project is concerned about migration and human trafficking using the example of Cambodia, where I am analysing how these two are interconnected. The paper I am writing in this context will furthermore shed the light on the reasons and drivers of how migration can turn into trafficking, considering the current economical and social situation in Cambodia and the problems that are still prevalent after the Khmer Rouge regime.

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.
