Cambodia – Justice Matters in 2017

Cambodia is uniquely placed to contribute to a dialogue on how the pursuit of international justice can strengthen local jurisprudential standards. Cambodia is one of two ASEAN countries that have signed and ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Capitalising on Cambodia’s unique position in this regard, Destination Justice has organised annual events, since 2014, celebrating International Justice Day. These events have aimed to raise awareness within Cambodia of domestic justice and promote fair, independent, and transparent justice. As a member of the NGO Coalition for the International Crimi...
