Guest Blogger: Phuong Pham

It is our pleasure to welcome Phuong Pham (left) as today's guest blogger. As part of our series on the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, Dr. Pham provides, in her guest post below, an update on efforts to stage an accounting for the Khmer Rouge era, particularly in light of ongoing disputes within the ECCC over whether to prosecute individuals other than those already in custody.
Phuong Pham, Ph.D. is the Director of Research at UC Berkeley School of Law, Human Rights Center, a Research Scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health and Associate Faculty with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI). Her areas of specialization include applications of epidemiologic research methods and information technology in complex emergency settings. She is a founding member of the Initiative for Vulnerable Populations and Kobo Project. She has extensive experience in designing and implementing research related to transitional justice in on-going and post-confliction countries such northern Uganda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Iraq, Cambodia and other areas affected by mass violence.

Heartfelt welcome!
