The Khmer Rouge Tribunal/ECCC: Achievements and Legacies

Over the last 10+ years, the Khmer Rouge Tribunal/Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) has opened investigations into five cases, completed three trials and sentenced three individuals to life imprisonment. More than 300 000 Cambodians have visited the court and many more have followed the proceedings on radio and television. This panel discussion brings together four key actors – social and legal experts with working experience of the ECCC – to reflect on the achievements and probable legacies of the tribunal.
