Study labor & industrial relations in Siem Reap & Phnom Penh

Home to Angkor Wat—one of the Seven Wonders of the World—and the vibrant city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia has prospered significantly over the last two decades, thanks to tourism and manufacturing. Yet, the country still faces challenges such as rural poverty and deficits in healthcare, education, and infrastructure.

In this study abroad program, you'll focus on how the dynamic changes in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap connect to their history, policies, and labor politics.

You'll immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of this remarkable country with a two-credit course in Cambodia featuring lectures in English by Cornell and SUNY Buffalo faculty, guest lectures by Cambodian locals, and excursions in and around Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

Note: The prerequisite for this program is a mandatory one-credit course to be held October 21–December 10, 2019, on the Cornell campus: Elements of Khmer Language and Culture (KHMER 1100)
