Decades have passed since the reign of terror of the Khmer Rouge and the terrible genocide of their own people. After years of reconstruction, however, Cambodia is now slipping straight into a new age of crisis. The economic boom of recent years has shamelessly enriched the upper class and influential people around the autocratic regime, while a large part of the population continues to live in poor conditions. Opposition parties and critical NGOs are being levered out or banned, as is the free press.
The welfare of the people in Cambodia is not in the best interests of the people at the moment, human rights are in a very difficult situation.
