WOTRO Sciencefor Global Development
This program addresses foreign-dominated processes of development in Cambodia, in particular economic growth and democratization,
Within a theoretical framework based on critical perspectives on globalization and development,
In a context within which these processes are shaped by the current Western practice of promoting democracy and the strong (East) Asian economic presence.
The focus is on a plethora of (foreign) institutional actors
Who are cooperating, competing and conflicting in the Cambodian ‘development industry’
And who – by doing so – create opportunities and threats for (newly emerging and established) Cambodian actors.THEME
