  • Title: CCHR | Cambodian Center for Human Rights
    Descriptive info: MAO Danay.. Project Intern.. CCHR is where the wild things are, a place where a fresh graduate like me can learn and develop my professionalism and inner personality as an individual.. Working as an intern for six months here has been so inspirational and supportive, which, as a result, has enabled me to discover my own life goal and the next steps I should take for the future.. I have been so blessed to have been accepted as a Project Intern in the Trial Monitoring Project (the “Project”), a project that aims to assess the adherence to fair trial standards and to promote the respect of fair trial rights.. Never before have I undertaken a role that required me to multi-task, yet the Project alone has provided me with various opportunities to work effectively as a member of team and to develop my capacity to work under pressure and manage my tasks wisely.. My work in the project was somewhat of a challenge, but I was lucky enough to have a great supervisor and colleagues.. They have been so open and have shown their willingness to give constructive feedback on my performance.. More importantly, CCHR, as well as the Project itself, has shown me how powerful the media is.. CCHR uses the media to rapidly disseminate a large number of human rights violations across the country for all the whole world to see by uncovering how laws are being implemented and the actual practices on the ground.. CCHR's efforts have a ripple effect for social justice and it will continuously impact on respect for human rights in society.. From the very beginning of my internship, I believed that this was a mission with great purpose and I feel that my contribution has mattered.. Rupert Abbott.. Director of Development and Programs.. “CCHR provided me with the opportunity to undertake extremely interesting work that hopefully contributed in a small way to the cause of human rights in Cambodia.. I learnt so much about human rights advocacy – which is about so much more than simply understanding human rights law – and managing and developing a not-for-profit organization.. I strongly believe that CCHR and its president Ou Virak are very important for the future of human rights in Cambodia.. ”.. Rupert Abbott is a British Solicitor and member of the Law Society of England and Wales and currently works for the United Nations in the Defence Support Section (DSS) at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).. The ECCC, known also as the ‘Khmer Rouge Tribunal’, is located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and was established to try those alleged to be senior Khmer Rouge leaders and those alleged to be most responsible for serious crimes committed in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979.. The DSS provides support to the defence lawyers representing the defendants at the ECCC, and works to ensure respect for fair trial rights.. Rupert was the Officer-in-Charge of the DSS for four months, and now helps manage the section’s legal aid scheme and assists on providing legal support to the defence teams.. He leads on implementing the DSS Legacy Program, designed to assist the ECCC in leaving a legacy of a strengthened justice system for Cambodia, through promoting rule of law and fair trial rights and building the capacity of lawyers and others.. From December 2008 to September 2010, Rupert was the Director of Development and Programs at the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR).. Working with CCHR President Ou Virak, Rupert developed human rights programs in the areas of community empowerment and research and advocacy; and helped to develop the CCHR’s organizational capacity, fund-raising over USD 1 million from international donor agencies.. Rupert researched, investigated and reported on alleged human rights violations and international crimes; and provided direct defense assistance to human rights defenders.. Rupert is an alumnus of the University of Oxford, where he read modern history and was President of the Oxford University Law Society and his College’s Student Union.. He studied law at the University of Sussex and College of Law, worked as a political researcher, and then joined the global law firm Baker McKenzie.. In 2007 he was ‘Highly Commended’ by the Law Society of England and Wales for his pro bono legal work.. Oeur Narin.. Researcher.. "I really enjoyed working with such a varied group.. The most invaluable thing I gained from CCHR is these friendships.. ".. The importance of human rights work for me, is in developing the country by empowering poor and vulnerable people to understand their rights and to practice and protect them.. A nation that respects human rights is a nation that will achieve development and democracy.. My own dream to work in the human rights field came through when I was hired as a researcher with CCHR.. During my two years working with CCHR I fulfilled many of my ambitions.. I had the opportunity to help find justice for victims of rights violations through my monitoring and advocacy work.. As a researcher, I built  ...   many great experiences.. I always found the atmosphere at CCHR friendly and inclusive, like that you get at home or in university.. I loved my time at CCHR for three reasons in particular.. Firstly, CCHR is a great place to learn, as though a university itself.. The staff and other interns were like my professors and classmates.. I learned a whole lot from everyone while I was there.. My time with CCHR gave me a great understanding of responsibility.. I studied my duties very carefully and I think what I learned will be very valuable to me in my future professional endeavors.. Secondly, CCHR felt like a home to me.. During working hours, I felt comfortable, as though I was at home.. There is a great atmosphere with people sharing knowledge.. When I made mistakes, my supervisor did not get angry but gave me advice on how to do a better job the next time.. I was treated like a son of the CCHR family and I saw CCHR like my parents.. I will remember particularly our staff trip in Koh Kong at the end of 2010 when we all traveled and had a great time together.. Thirdly and most importantly, my time with CCHR was important to me because of the type of work the organization does.. The work of the organization to promote and protect human rights can contribute to the creation of a responsible government.. CCHR is an organization that works tirelessly for the people of Cambodia.. I hope to work for CCHR again in the future because I see the organization like my home and my university.. I thank CCHR for making me feel at home, I will always remember that I am a son of the CCHR family.. I learned a lot from the people working at CCHR who were very open and willing to help us interns, while at the same time trusting us to work independently.. During my four-month internship at CCHR I was lucky enough to work on engaging and interesting issues involving freedom of information, freedom of expression and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender rights.. Working at CCHR was extremely interesting, and enjoyable.. The atmosphere in the office is very friendly and also exciting, with unraveling human rights situations and political events needing to be documented, and public statements needing to be released.. I enjoyed the combination of working to deadlines, for example on press releases, as well as having longer-term projects to work on continuously.. My time at CCHR challenged me and gave me the opportunity to use skills that I had gained at university, while also helping me to develop new skills such as report writing, interviewing and writing press releases.. I really appreciated the warmth of the staff as well as their passion for human rights and their commitment to improving the situation in Cambodia.. I met some great people through my time at CCHR, who made my stay in Cambodia all the more enjoyable.. I am really glad to have worked at CCHR, it has been a truly worthwhile experience and my only regret is leaving!.. Bijan Hoshi.. The high level of responsibility I was given is uncharacteristic of an internship and has improved my capacity for creative and strategic legal thinking, and developed my ability to work independently to a professional standard.. I was assigned to the Cambodian Business and Human Rights Project, an advocacy campaign designed to improve awareness of and commitment to human rights within the Cambodian business community.. The Project aimed to create a climate of non-confrontation and constructive cooperation between all stakeholder groups in the Cambodian private sector.. The challenges of living and working in Phnom Penh, and contributing to social justice for the Cambodian people, were rewarding experiences.. Ngeth Samneang.. Web Officer.. "In comparison to my previous work experience in private sector companies, CCHR afforded me the opportunity to better learn and understand human rights laws, violations and other human rights issues which are prevalent in Cambodia.. Personally I am both delighted and proud of myself as I used to be the Web Officer for CCHR and thoroughly enjoyed the close connections I had with my other colleagues as we worked together to help Cambodian citizens who were victims of human rights violations.. CCHR is working, in its role as one of the main Human Rights organizations in Cambodia, to develop the country by providing basic knowledge of human rights throughout the whole country, and greater access to information through Sithi.. org.. Through CCHR’s continued and future successes Cambodia will become an even better, and stronger, country..

He worked as a Web Officer at CCHR and was responsible for the development of.. sithi.. , the first human rights portal of its kind in Cambodian that is accessible in both English and Khmer..

    Descriptive info: Support Us.. Jobs.. National Internships.. International Internships.. Campaigns.. Campaign for Freedom of Expression.. 22/11 Justice Fund.. In order to affect change in the degree to which the human rights of all Cambodian people are fully respected and promoted by the Cambodian government, significant legislative, policy and structural reforms are required.. CCHR seeks to work on a policy level analyzing wider trends and underlying causes of human rights violations, and providing recommendations for the reforms that are required in order to ensure an end to human rights violations.. CCHR engages in sustained advocacy for the achievement of these reforms.. Campaigns are an essential element of our advocacy and are one of the strategies through which we seek to encourage the government to strengthen its respect for the human rights of all Cambodian people.. Our peaceful campaigns combine several techniques – demonstrations, letters to members of parliament, petitions, etc.. – that are designed to show the government our disapproval of a particular policy or our demand for a particular reform.. Our campaigns seek to provide ordinary people with an opportunity to contribute to efforts to demand change and to promote human rights..  ...   a banner used during Human Rights Day celebrations.. AFEC distributed 100,000 yellow ribbons as a symbol of the need to support freedom of expression throughout Cambodia.. The launch of this campaign echoed throughout the world and large numbers of Cambodians wore yellow ribbons to public events sending a clear message to the government that Cambodian civil society did not accept repression against its leading activists.. Assisted by international pressure, AFEC succeeded in securing the release of the human rights activists.. In February 2006, again in our capacity as coordinator of AFEC, we organized a march for freedom of expression that resulted in Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen promising to decriminalize defamation.. While defamation remains a criminal offence, the custodial sentence that previously accompanied it was removed.. From 25 February to 15 March 2007, AFEC organized a 314-kilometre march from Phnom Penh to Angkor Wat for freedom of expression, non-violence and political tolerance in Cambodia ahead of commune council elections..

  • Title: CCHR | Cambodian Center for Human Rights
    Descriptive info: Koh Pich bridge, Phnom Penh, scene of the stampede tragedy on the 22 November 2011.. On 22 November 2010, the last day of Cambodia’s annual Water Festival, hundreds of Cambodians were killed on Koh Pich Bridge in Phnom Penh in what is Cambodia’s worst ever peace time tragedy.. Initial reports put the number of dead as high as 456, a number that since been reduced to 350 by the Royal Government of Cambodia in what is being described as a “human stampede”.. Around 400 people were also injured.. The first rumours that spread through Phnom Penh on the night of 22 November were that the bridge had collapsed.. The following morning, a doctor from Calmette hospital explained that a preliminary assessment of the causes of death among the victims he had examined were suffocation and electrocution, a suggestion that was subsequently rejected outright by government spokesmen and denied by Calmette officials notwithstanding statements by numerous victims that they had been electrocuted on the bridge.. Within days, those affected by the tragedy started looking for answers; “we really need the explanation from the government,” said one man whose granddaughters, daughter and nieces had been injured in the tragedy.. Another man, whose sister died on the bridge, expressed his anger at the tragedy and asked whether the “police really did their job? Why did they allow it to happen in the first place?”.. But satisfactory answers to questions like these were never given, and the government quickly drew a line in the sand declaring  ...   speed with which the tragedy was pushed aside and forgotten by officials reflect wider problems in Cambodia of cronyism and the absence of accountability for wealthy and powerful individuals.. The 22/11 Justice Fund was set up to support and facilitate calls by the families of those who died on the bridge, and by those who were injured that night, for justice and to help find answers to the questions the government did not adequately address or seek to find answers for.. Between December 2010 and February 2011, CCHR interviewed over a hundred people about the Koh Pich tragedy, including survivors, victim’s families, doctors and police.. CCHR made radio appeals asking people across the country to provide information about the night to assist in providing a clearer picture of what happened.. In March 2011, CCHR will publish a report setting out the findings of our interviews and comparing those findings to the findings of the government committee that was vested with the authority to investigate the causes of the tragedy on Koh Pich Bridge..
