In partnership with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Foundation, the Henri Capitant Association in Cambodia and its members have participated to the drafting of a publication dedicated to the Cambodian constitutional law, that will allow the civil society to better understand the general constitutional framework of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
This book is now available!
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.
