Nationalistic sentiments spurred by populist rhetoric have been on the rise globally. Asia is no exception to this trend.

Yet the current streak of Asian nationalism can also become a setbackfor democracy and human rights.

Beyond the Screen: Online Harassment of Cambodia’s Digital Youth Advocate

I have been online harassed countless of times. It's not only because I'm outspoken, but also because I'm a woman. I believe that many women have similar experience online simply because they are women. I have received harassment messages as well as unsolicited genital pictures and pornography.

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.
