Welcome Message
Hello and welcome, 



Thank you for visiting the website of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR). Your interest in, and support of, CCHR is greatly appreciated and essential to our ongoing efforts to promote and protect human rights in  the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Cambodia is finding itself as a crossroads: rapid economic growth in recent years have expanded the opportunities available to Cambodian citizens, yet the Government’s failure to systematically respect and promote human rights has led to widespread violations which continue to hinder the development of true democracy in the country. More often than not, the interests of the wealthy and powerful trump those of average Cambodian citizens, at a detriment to the whole country. 

CCHR works to address these issues, through monitoring human rights violations and the democratic process, advocating for policy and legislative changes necessary to the promotion of human rights, and through empowering activist and communities to advocate for their rights.

We also promote a collaborative approach to human rights. This means we work in association with other partners and seek to address human rights from the ground up. Each of our projects seeks to empower a number of different actors: ordinary people, grassroots activists, community-based organizations and so on. On this site you will find information regarding these actors but you will also find links to our partners (both national and international), donors and other organizations working to promote human rights in Cambodia.

I encourage you to use this website to learn more about the human rights situation in Cambodia and about CCHR’s history, staff and work in promoting human rights and democracy. The site provides links to all CCHR resources, from press releases, to reports, to news stories about our work and information on how you can support CCHR and stay up to date with our activities.

If you have any questions about CCHR or want to become involved with our work, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are also an excellent way to stay updated on information related to human rights in Cambodia and to follow CCHR activities. We hope you will find the CCHR website a useful resource and will continue to visit us in the future.

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website,

Chak Sopheap
