Beyond Democracy in Cambodia

Political Reconstruction in a Post-Conflict Society

The peace agreement, major reconstruction efforts and UN-supervised elections that followed Cambodia’s dark period of civil war and genocide have not brought the democracy and reconstruction that was hoped for. Exploring the tension between the needs of reconstruction and democratization and the extent that the current political order has succeeded in managing this situation, this volume is the first study to assess the post-conflict democratization and reconstruction process in Cambodia in a systematic and in-depth empirical way.
