This report analyses Cambodia's laws on domestic violence, marriage, rape, and human trafficking, to determine whether the laws contravene the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). The findings are based on review of literature and laws, and interviews with NGO workers and clients. The authors conclude that Cambodia’s laws are failing to protect Cambodian women, and need to be amended, drafted and implemented in accordance with the principles of the CEDAW.
