This event aims to serve as a holistic discussion on Cambodia, a country that is often overlooked in its strategic importance to the region. As a country where the remnants of the Khmer Rouge-led genocide are still fresh, Cambodia proves to be an interesting case study when examining the ASEAN region as a whole. Not only does it possess a fascinating history, but its strategic location next to neighbors such as Thailand and Vietnam as well as its unique political and economic structures make it an outlier in its own right. For those who have visited and/or studied Cambodia, it is a country with a charm that is not easily forgotten. For those who are learning about Cambodia for the first time, this event will give you a taste of all that the country represents and has to offer.
