In addition to our strong management team, Documentation Center of Cambodia’s success owes much to the strong support we have enjoyed from the international community.



We have received generous financial contributions from public and private donors from around the world. Our leading donors include the governments of the United States, The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, United Kingdoms, and Canada. We have also enjoyed the support of foundations and institutes such as the United Nations’ Center for Human Rights in Cambodia, Open Society Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Unites States Institute of Peace, the United States Holocaust Museum, the Swedish Living History Forum, Dan-Church Aid, and the J.B. and M.K. Pritzker Family Foundation.



We have also benefitted greatly from the support of an international network of scholars and professionals who have contributed their expertise on matters such as law, business, accounting, history, education, and human rights advocacy. Key knowledge contributors include David Ashley (MA, SOAS-London), Frank Chalk (PhD, Wisconsin), David Chandler (PhD, Michigan), Phala Chea (PhD, Massachusetts), John Ciorciari (PhD, Oxford and JD, Harvard), Susan Cook (PhD, Yale), Chris Dearing (JD, Seattle), Ambassador Eng Roland (BA, University of Law and Political Science, Aix-en-Provence), Craig Etcheson (PhD, USC), Steven Heder (PhD, London), Alex Hinton (PhD, Emory), Julio Jeldres (PhD candidate, Monash), Ben Kiernan (PhD, Monash), Sambo Manara (MA, Cal State Long Beach), Judge Soeung Panhavuth (MA in law, State University of Ukraine), Jaya Ramji-Nogales (JD, Yale), David Scheffer (LLM, Georgetown), Ron Slye (JD, Yale), Gregory Stanton (PhD, Chicago and JD, Yale), Laura Summers (PhD, Hull), Heng Vanda (PhD, Institute of Accounting-Cambodia), Ambassador Laetitia van den Assum (LLM, Columbia), Beth Van Schaack (JD, Yale), Judge Huot Vuthy (MA in law, State University of Ukraine), Markus Zimmer (PhD Harvard) and many others.

We have also benefitted from the work of hundreds of national and international student volunteers, including guest researchers and participants in our annual summer legal associate program. We look forward to working with our international network of supporters to realize our shared vision for the future.
