CCHR Releases a Briefing Note on Media Regulation and Freedom of Expression in Cambodia
Released on 2014-02-13
This Briefing Note provides an overview of media regulation in the Kingdom of Cambodia (“Cambodia”) and its implications for freedom of expression.

Freedom of Expression in the Kingdom
Released on 2014-02-10
This Policy Brief summarizes the results from six RTDs organized over a two-year period by the Project. It concludes with recommendations directed at the Royal Government of Cambodia (the “RGC”) for the improvement of the situation of free expression in Cambodia. The right to freedom of expression is a cornerstone of any functioning democracy. Without the right to seek and impart information, to hold opinions and to engage in debate, citizens cannot meaningfully participate in the political lives of their nations. In Cambodia’s fledgling democracy, the state of freedom of expression is worryingly fragile. Up-to-date and first-hand information from those who are directly affected by restrictions to freedom of expression in their everyday lives is essential not just for developing knowledge of the practical realities but as a tool for change.

This practice represents an unlawful restriction on HRDs’ and individuals rights to freedom of expression and assembly and dangerously restricts the environment in which HRDs operate.
