DC-CAM Internship – Cambodia

Background: The Documentation Centre of Cambodia (DC-CAM) is a Cambodian non-governmental organization whose mission is to research and record the era of Democratic Kampuchea for the purposes of memory and justice.

DC-Cam was established by Yale University’s Cambodia Genocide Program in 1995 and became an autonomous Cambodian research institute in January 1997. The Center is a not-for- profit, non-governmental organization that is acknowledged as an independent and nonpartisan institute in Cambodia. DC-Cam’s two main objectives— memory and justice—serve to build the foundation for the rule of law and Cambodia’s national reconciliation. To ensure that we may continue our efforts, DC-Cam is establishing a permanent center called the Sleuk Rith Institute, which will house the Museum of Memory, the Sleuk Rith Research Institute, the Documentation Center, and a Genocide Studies School. See website.

Project: The Sleuk Rith Institute in Cambodia is part of DC-Cam. There is a position for a Monash Intern to spend two months at the Centre.

As a 2015 Intern, the Monash intern will have an important role to play in the Genocide Education Project and the School of Genocide, Conflict and Human Rights Studies—one of the three pillars of the Sleuk Rith Institute, which is envisioned to be a leading Centre of genocide studies in Asia. The Intern will work on the online education resources, which include but not limited to the followings:

  • Field research of online genocide history sites from other countries
  • Selecting element formats (for example text, video, audio, pictures) to be used on the site
  • Determination of suitability of various elements for various topics
  • Developing interactive components for the site
  • Determining tonality of presentation.

In addition, the Intern will work with the School team to produce texts for a separate School website and engage in a small research project, the topic of which is subject to be discussed further with the School Director.
