EU support to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) and the Awareness and Education Programme on the Khmer Rouge regime

Since 2007, the EU together with the government of Cambodia and the international community is supporting  the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia - ECCC (Khmer Rouge Tribunal). 

The ECCC has provided a measure of accountability for the crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge. It has given both victims and perpetrators a chance to hear, put on record their testimony and seek justice to the victims.  The EU support also fosters the country's current reconciliation process and help healing traumas suffered by the Cambodian population under the Khmer Rouge regime.
