Cambodian children’s rights continue to be infringed on despite improvements in recent years, new reports and experts say ahead of Children’s Day in Cambodia on Saturday.
The KidsRights Index, published in May, ranks Cambodia 128 out of 181 countries on children’s rights. The report, which looks at indicators that include health, education and children’s protection, finds that economic growth does not lead to better implementation of children’s rights.
The kingdom scored worse than neighboring Thailand, (ranked 14), Vietnam (ranked 57), and Laos (ranked 112), and scored only slightly better than Myanmar (ranked 133).
