Broadhurst, Roderic G. (2006) Lethal Violence, Crime and Political change in Cambodia. In Croissant, Aurel, Martin, Beate, & Kneip, Sascha (Eds.) The Politics of Death. Political Violence in Southeast Asia. Lit Verlag, Munster-Hamburg, pp. 343-378.
A decade after Cambodia’s first free elections in 1993, sanctioned by the 1991 Paris Accords, the departure of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC), and the establishment of the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC), how violent is Cambodia? How does lethal violence in Cambodia compare with other Southeast Asian nations, developed and developing countries? Is Cambodia’s violent image justified? What socio-economic, political, structural, institutional or situational factors may account for the levels of lethal violence observed?
This chapter estimates the prevalence of and describes the nature of homicide in the Kingdom of Cambodia. An introductory attempt is made to theorize the nature of violence in the context of democratic transition, the formation of crucial state capacities and institutions, and the simultaneous modernization of social and economic relations.
