Leeds Law Professor talks Cambodian rights

28 October 2009 | Alex Greenwood

Professor Surya Subedi OBE will give a lunchtime lecture about human rights in Cambodia on 27 November 2009 in Cambridge.

The lunchtime lecture is entitled "The UN Human Rights Mandate in Cambodia: the Challenge of a Country in Transition."

The event will take place at the Finley Library at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. The Cnetre is part of the Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge, and is one of the Cambridge faculty's specialist law centres.

Professor Subedi has a special mandate from the United Nations to investigate, monitor and recommend solutions to human rights issues in Cambodia as a UN Special Rapporteur.

He will talk about Cambodia efforts to rebuild its legal, insitutional and political systems after the end of the Khmer Rouge rule, and the challenges the country now faces in striking a balance between economic development and human rights protection.

Professor Subedi will particularly focus upon the nature and scope of these challenges for the Cambodian government and the role of the United Nations.
