A propos de la publication

Cambodia today is one of the poorest countries in South-East Asia. While significant improvements have been made since the Khmer Rouge regime and the civil war, a fundamental fragility exists beneath the current perception of stability. While the state of education in Cambodia has greatly improved over the past two decades in reaching more children than ever before and in ensuring increased equal access to students of all ethnic, socio-economic and geographical backgrounds, major shortcomings related to fragility continue to limit progress. This report, published by UNESCO's International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP), examines the impact of education on fragility in Cambodia through a review of the interaction of education with the drivers and dynamics of fragility.
