Name Formalizing inequality: Land titling in Cambodia

This paper highlights the failure of the Cambodia's land titling programme to protect the rights of vulnerable people living on sought-after land in the Heart of Phnom Penh, Boeng Kak community. The authors argue that since this World Bank supported program, residents’ insecurity has increased: while many have been forced to leave, more than 2,000 families still remain and are standing their ground under threat of forced eviction. The paper also describes the community’s action to bring a case to the World Bank Inspection Panel, demanding that the World Bank undo the damage caused to their community.
