Biographical / Historical

The Cambodian Genocide Program (CGP) at the Yale Center for International and Area Studies was created in 1995. Its establishment was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of State. The program's mandate was to investigate, catalog, and make publicly available primary source material on the Khmer Rouge. The three components of the program are the program itself; the Documentation Center of Cambodia, which gathers and preserves documentation in Cambodia; and the Cambodia Justice Project, created to train Cambodians in international law.
