UCC examines justice issues in Cambodia

UN Human Rights Committee Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Cambodia, Professor Rhona Smith, will deliver a speech at UCC this Thursday.

Prof Smith will deliver the 11th Centre for Criminal Justice and Human Rights Distinguished Lecture on the centrality of human rights in creating durable peace, stability and development.

In 2017, the leader of Cambodia’s political opposition was charged with treason, and the main opposition party dissolved.


This year’s national election was widely condemned as a sham when the ruling Cambodia People’s Party won by a landslide. The EU described the result as taking place in a “highly restrictive political climate”.

The talk takes place in the new UCC Centre for Executive Education, The Banking Hall, 1 Lapp's Quay, Cork, T12 VF82, at 5.30pm, for which tickets must be reserved .
