Gender-based crimes in the Khmer Rouge period: Justice and Healing

Gender-based crimes in the Khmer Rouge period: Justice and Healing

In this public lecture, Cambodian psychotherapist Yim Sotheary will reflect on working with survivors of Khmer-Rouge era sexual and gender-based crimes. She will be introduced by SSEAC Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Rosemary Grey (Sydney Law School), whose research focuses on the prosecution of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in the Khmer Rouge Tribunal.

The lecture will reflect on the role of art as a tool for justice and healing for these crimes. In particular, we will consider “Pka Sla Krom Angkar”, a dance which explores the theme of marriage during the Khmer Rouge period.

This event is co-hosted by the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre and Sydney Law School.
