Cambodia: Land in conflict, an overview of the land situation

Conflict over land, combined with the systematic violation of land rights, is one of the most prominent human rights problems faced by Cambodians. The root of this problem can be traced back to the abolition of private ownership by the Khmer Rouge in 1975. This report provides an overview of the land conflicts and provides recommendations for resolving these conflicts.
