The Peace and Conflict Studies Institute is hosted within the Faculty of Social Sciences and International Relations. The Institute is involved in a number of research projects with institutions outside of Cambodia, notably the Free University of Amsterdam and our Global Campus partners in Japan, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. The Institute also sponsors courses on the topic of peace and conflict studies, in cooperation with institutions in Japan Indonesia and Sri Lanka. Expanding relations with academic and non-academic bodies are part of the mission of the Institute and the Faculty of Social Sciences and International Relations. We are also developing our relations with NGOs and other organizations active in Cambodia in order to strengthen our educational and service activities here, for the improvement of academia and the society as a whole.
