Khmer Institute of Democracy

Year Established:1992


The Khmer Institute for Democracy (KID) was founded in October 1992 with the goal of inculcating democratic values into Cambodian society. It upholds and consolidates Cambodia's pluralistic liberal democratic order as determined by the 1991 Paris Peace Agreements, by all international human rights instruments adhered to by Cambodia, and by the Cambodian Constitution of 1993. KID's activities include: televised programs (Public Opinion, Problems and Solutions, Future Vision, Leadership); televised quiz on the Constitution; radio program (Grassroots Democracy and Awareness of Child Trafficking); training in civic education, democracy, rule of law, human rights, market economy; proto-Ombudsman system; publication of quarterly journal; library services; advocacy on national issues; workshops on the rule of law and due process.
