Cambodia - Organizations

In 1975, cooperative organization became a central tenet of the GRUNK government's social and economic reorganization policy. By 1976, cooperative ownership had become a countrywide phenomenon, playing a major role in both agriculture and industry. Virtually all other social and commercial organizations, including chambers of commerce, were disbanded by mid-1975; however, a number of new groups have formed since the 1990s. The Khmer Youth Association, founded in 1992, has been very active in promoting education and job training, as well as the championing the rights of women and children. The Cambodian Human Rights and Development Association, established in 1991, promotes respect for human rights and the rule of law by providing legal services and educational materials to the public.
