Project Description

Our aim, in response to the needs of our industry partners, is to develop a culturally grounded model for violence - the case is Cambodia, the relevance is Australian international development and security. In the course of action research, we will describe violence as seen by victims and perpetrators and their local healing network; chart the causes as they see it; map the solutions they seek and the options available; and equip local and Australian Partner Organisations to work within the cultural frameworks of the society with regard to violence. We will augment the capacity of Australian universities and NGOs in building cultural competence as a bedrock of accountability in Australian international development.
