Conference: “The Constitution of the Kingdom of Cambodia, 20 years after its implementation”, by Hisham Mousar – 10 May 2016
To reach the Paris Peace Accords (October 23, 1991), harsh negociations took place between the diverse political movements, leading to a «constitutional syncretism». The inevitable vagueness – not to say limpness – of the resulting constitutional text paradoxically enabled it to survive the political crisis that shook the country. Western in its design, it is the fundamental written source of all Cambodian Law. It is a modern constitution that also keeps alive the traditional and century-long Khmer customs.
