Time for Reparations? The Cambodian Government’s Response to the Khmer Rouge Atrocities
Please join the Human Rights Program for a talk by Sreang Heng, Research Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard Kennedy School. In this talk, Heng will discuss how the Cambodian government has handled the aftermath of the genocide since the collapse of the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979. He will explore a variety of perspectives from inside Cambodia on how the ruling elites and the international community collaborated in establishing a hybrid court to address the crimes against humanity and genocide committed during the Khmer Rouge era.
This event is co-sponsored by the Armed Conflict & Civilian Protection Initiative, the Harvard Human Rights Journal, the Criminal Justice Policy Program, HLS Advocates for Human Rights, and the Harvard Asia Law Society. Lunch will be served.
