    It is now more difficult than ever to be a human rights defender in Cambodia.

    Seeking Justice in Cambodia tells the powerful stories of the original founders of Cambodian human rights organisations and the younger generation of leaders, all of whom have fought tirelessly and with great conviction to achieve justice and human rights for all Cambodians.

    Sue Coffey decided to compile this book following the period she spent working in Cambodia as an Australian Government volunteer. She was shocked by much of what she saw at the time: lack of transparency in government dealings; rampant deforestation; people being thrown off their land to make way for hydro schemes; freedom of speech and action blatantly under threat.

    She felt that unless the stories of these remarkable people were recorded, they might be lost to posterity. But this issue is not just a Cambodian one. The lessons here can apply to many other countries struggling to achieve human rights.

    Seeking Justice in Cambodia tells a powerful tale of the struggle to bring human rights to all Cambodians from the early 1990s to the present day.

  • About the author

    Sue Coffey is a writer and communications specialist who has worked in a wide range of roles across government and not-for-profit sectors. She has strong interest and experience in human rights issues, having worked in communications in these areas both in Australia and overseas. In 2012-13 she worked in Cambodia for the Australian Government's overseas aid program, as communications advisor to the NGO Forum on Cambodia, a peak body in Phnom Penh working for human rights for all Cambodians. She then moved to Myanmar, where she was communications advisor to the Myanmar Government's education reform program until 2015. Prior to these roles she worked in a diverse array of senior advisory and policy roles in the Victorian Government, peak bodies and not-for-profit organisations. All of the roles in which she has worked have taught her the importance of working towards a just and equitable world, in which all people have access to human rights and fair distribution of resources.
