Korob, Kaud, Klach: In Search of Agency in Rural Cambodia

This article takes the dominant view of a top-down Khmer political culture as its point of departure and explores the extent to which the last decade’s political changes have altered the socio-political landscape and triggered the growth of agency in rural areas. In particular, the reform of democratic decentralisation and its integrated ‘soft’ values are scrutinised in fields such as views on local governance, popular discourse on decentralisation, rural NGO activity and the gendering of politics.
