Why is your organization supporting the Master’s of International Public Law program at RULE ?

NPA has been active in Cambodia since 1992, providing financial and technical assistance to the Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) to undertake demining activities which would allow for the return and resettlement of refugees from the border camps in Thailand. In 1997 NPA embarked on a program to resettle 5,000 wardisplaced families on cleared land in the northwest of Cambodia. A community development program was implemented, working in both the resettled areas and the surrounding villages. In 2003 NPA began transitioning from a direct implementation approach to a rightsbased approach building on a partnership framework. Today NPA supports local organizations engaged in advocacy and mobilization work around the priority rights for Cambodian people.

NPA Cambodia aims to support capacity building of local staff to enhance their skills to better serve the development needs of Cambodia. This will then enable our programming skills to deliver quality support to our local partners.
