Abstract

In the scholarly literature on the role of civil society in transitional justice processes there seems to be broad agreement that civil society actors can make important contributions to these processes (Backer 2003; Duthie 2009). However, the scope and nature of civil society’s involvement is rarely examined by way of more in-depth case studies. This chapter looks at the case of Cambodian non-governmental organisations’ (NGOs) involvement with victim participation at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Court of Cambodia (ECCC) with a view to examining civil society’s contributions in more detail.
