Open Cambodia 2011
Open Cambodia 2011 convened leading Cambodian technologists, human rights activists, and international experts to build connections, generate ideas, and lay the foundation for future collaboration. Beyond raising awareness about specific projects, such as Sithi.org, the event also aimed to expand human rights work beyond the human rights community, targeting technology “maker/doers”, who tend to be engaged and influential members of society. Open Cambodia was funded by USAID and implemented under the East-West Management Institute’s Project on Rights & Justice (PRAJ). Other partners included Aspiration Technology, the Mozilla Foundation, and the Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington's Information School.
