UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia Discusses His Role

UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia, Professor Surya Subedi, visited Freedom House April 4 to discuss his role and ways to empower Cambodian civil society. He has addressed such issues as land rights and the transparency of future elections and tried to walk the fine line between publicly calling out human rights abusers and working cooperatively and privately with governments to provide constructive recommendations.
