U4: Cambodia’s Anti-Corruption Regime 2008-2018: A Critical Political Economy Approach

Cambodia’s anti-corruption reforms have been critical to consolidating power in the hands of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party. Financial management reforms and decentralisation processes promote a liberal rather than democratic agenda. Given China’s close relationship with Cambodia, the ruling party will likely continue this path. Donor strategies for reducing corruption need to be clear about how interventions will deliver democratic dividends. Opportunities may exist to create anti-corruption coalitions supported by social groups, particularly at the commune level.
