A View from the Inside: A Forum on the 2013 Cambodian National Elections


Keynote Speaker: Miss Theary C. Seng

The recent Cambodian elections have been fraught with controversy amidst widespread allegations of cheating, vote-buying and military coercion. Numerous local civic groups, as well the international community, have been clamoring for transparency from the government, of which little is forthcoming. Ms. Theary Seng will talk about the current political situation in the country post-elections, as well as offer her insights into possible strategies to better understand and resolve technical issues of election irregularities, especially in social settings such as Cambodia.

On September 3, 2013, ANSA-EAP Foundation, Inc. and the Ateneo School of Government are inviting everyone to attend the two-hour forum at the Ateneo de Manila University for a closer look at present-day Cambodia, its furtive government and its citizens appealing for political change. It will be held at the Pacifico Ortiz Hall from 2pm-4pm.

We hope to see you there.

Keynote speaker Theary C. Seng is a Cambodian lawyer and noted human rights activist. She is the President of the Board of Trustees of the ANSA-EAP Foundation, Inc.
