Co-organised by the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR), the chief objective of the event was to conduct a comprehensive assessment of implementation of the recommendations which Cambodia received during its second Universal Periodic Reivew in 2014. The event brought together representatives from national and international CSOs, OHCHR Cambodia and the Royal Government of Cambodia. In addition, the workshop received a lot of media coverage in both radio and printed press.
