Still Banking on Land Grabs

Publication Year: 2016  / Sources: Oxfam Australia

Publication Year: 2016  / Sources: Child Rights International Network (CRIN)

Performance and Perception: The Impact of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia

Publication Year: 2016  / Sources: Open Society Foundations

This report attempts to examine both how the ECCC has performed, and how Cambodians perceive its performance. It seeks first to analyze the ECCC’s record to date in meeting its primary goal of providing justice to the victims of the KR by establishing credible accountability for the highest level perpetrators and thus ending impunity for the worst crimes of the KR. Second, this report examines the court’s record in meeting its secondary goals of contributing to an improved domestic justice system, healing and reconciliation for victims and perpetrators, and a better general understanding of what happened during the KR regime.

Implementation of the International and Regional Human Rights Framework for the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation

Publication Year: 2014  / Sources: United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

Before the 1990s, the international community did not view violence against women in general and more specifically Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) as a major issue. If violence against women was recognized as an issue at all, it was seen as under the purview of national governments, not a subject of international law. Violence against women was widely viewed as a private act or a domestic matter carried out by private individuals. For this reason FGM was initially placed beyond the scope of international human rights law.
