Indigenous Traditional Legal Systems and Conflict Resolution in Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri Provinces, Cambodia

uploaded by Sharai Lewis-Gruss

This UNDP report presents the findings of participatory action-research into the traditional justice systems of indigenous villages in Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri provinces.  The research took place over the period of March and April 2006.  The study has two main purposes:

1) to describe traditional justice systems and practices and raise issues for consideration in
policy and legislative development that would maintain access to justice for indigenous
communities through protection of indigenous peoples’ authorities, procedures and norms;
and
2) to describe some of the difficulties indigenous peoples face in finding just resolutions to their
problems outside their village and to suggest some possible solutions, largely based on
their own ideas.
