Director's Statement

Memory -- Memory of the past is the foundation needed to understand the present and shape the future. The Sleuk Rith Institute School will train exceptional Cambodian youth and international students about the lessons of the past and the principles of law and human rights needed to motivate a new generation of leaders. With a state-of-the-art library, we will create a setting that encourages students and researchers to work collaboratively.
