Who We Are

CKS is a non-governmental institution supported by international foundations, educational institutions, scholars, the US department of education, and interested individuals and philanthropists from the US, France, and Cambodia.

What We Do

  • Facilitate research, knowledge sharing and insights on topics related to Cambodia’s social, economic and cultural development.
  • Strengthen research and teaching capacities in the social sciences and humanities as they relate to Cambodia and South East Asia by working with social scientists, sociologists, urban scientists, anthropologists, economists, geographers, political scientists, and others.
  • Partner with all major public universities in Cambodia, key development organizations, and relevant public ministries/authorities. We also work closely with leading universities and research centers across US, Europe, and Southeast Asia.

CKS’s research and educational programs are run from our headquarters in Siem Reap and from our office in Phnom Penh. Please visit us to learn more about the work we do!

We think of ourselves as a bridge, as a crossroads; a real center for institutions, researchers, scholars, practitioners, students, and the general public to meet and interact through a series of programs and initiatives.
