A better understanding of the modern world:
The main objective of University Paris 8 ; with its focus on humanities, human sciences, arts and social sciences ; has always been giving students a better understanding of the modern world while enabling them, at the same time, to achieve long-term integration into society.
A better understanding of modern Cambodia:
One cannot understand the public organization of the modern State of Cambodia if one does not know its history. The modern public organization of the State of Cambodia (its constitution, its public law) is very narrowly linked to French Law. The involvement of Paris 8 University will provide, for the first time, an opportunity for Cambodian students to learn about French Law and Cambodian Law in the English language.
