ECCC Study Tour

<div>The ECCC Study Tour is a one day program where the ECCC brings students, teachers and villagers from all across Cambodia to visit the ECCC court room the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum and the Choeung Ek Killing Fields Memorial. &nbsp;The study tour is offered twice per week during the weeks without court hearings for groups of 300-450 people on each day, and the activity is being &nbsp;organized by the Public Affairs Section.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Main objectives: </b>&nbsp;The objective of the ECCC study tour is to create greater understanding and awareness of the ECCC proceedings among regular Cambodians, and to increase the public interest in the proceedings.&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div>Target groups:&nbsp;</div><div>•<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Teachers</div><div>•<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Students at high school and university level</div><div>•<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"> </span>Villagers from rural areas</div><div><br></div><div>Teachers and students are important target groups, as some surveys have suggested that the knowledge about Democratic Kampuchea and the interest and understanding of the ECCC proceedings is significantly lower among Cambodians born after 1979.&nbsp;Villagers from rural areas do not have the same access to the media coverage of the ECCC as people in the cities. The ECCC Study Tour is therefore an efficient mean of educating and updating this group &nbsp;about the judicial proceedings.</div><div><br></div>
