Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia, bordering Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. Cambodia is famous for the Angkor Wat temple, that have built for Hindu religion during Khmer Empire. (officially the Angkor Empire) Now, the temple is part of Angkor World Heritage Site and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the world. At its peak, the Khmer empire (802-1431) covered much of what today is Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and southern Vietnam.

However, there was a great tragedy in this flourishing culture. The Cambodian Killing Fields (Khmer: វាលពិឃាត) are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979, immediately after the end of the Cambodian Civil War.

The killing fields document death. From 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge soldiers killed 1.7 million Cambodians, or 21 percent of the population, according to Yale University’s Cambodia Genocide Program. Maybe, it is the reason why the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) signed a MoU with HWPL to introduce Peace education nationwide and develop relevant policies and programs.

How did Cambodian Genocide end?

The Fall of the Republic of Democratic Kampuchea. On December 25, 1978, Vietnam launched a full-scale invasion of Cambodia and on January 7, 1979, Phnom Penh fell and Pol Pot was deposed.

What was the purpose of the Cambodian Genocide?

Ideology. Ideology played an important role in the genocide. Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge aimed to bring Cambodia back to its “mythic past” of the Powerful Khmer Empire, to stop corrupting influences like foreign aid and western culture, and to restore the country to an agrarian society.

Ideology can be solved through education. It is the reason why Cambodia wants to cooperate with HWPL.

Particularly, Mr.Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, a peace activist, came to Cambodia to seek peace with the bishops of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Justice and the state-run broadcasting station, and called on all people to become peace messengers for world peace.

HWPL is currently moving forward with a worldwide influence to bring DPCW, a new international law, to the United Nations. DPCW is a definte answer to peace that can end the war. Created by 21 international law experts, it is recognized not only sophisticated, but also it is aligned with UN Charter and SDGs.

The news of peace will continue to be heard. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to the 30th world peace tour. Because the 29th world peace tour has achieved tremendous results. You can see other postings.

  1. What a difficult past Cambodia has had. It’s so good to see Cambodia signing an MOU to provide peace education. 117 schools have now voluntarily became HWPL Peace Academies and agreed to design programmes and courses to enhance the peace-making capacities of students in all grades. This educational peace work must continue
