Course Description:  In this J-term abroad course, we will have an opportunity to engage with people in Cambodia who are making a difference in a post-civil war environment. Studying in the poorest country in Southeast Asia, we will explore how a very young population is rebuilding, after having lost many men and elders to the Khmer Rouge regime. We will examine the roles that women and children play in contemporary Cambodian society, meet local citizens, engage in service learning projects, and study the political and religious background of the area from native experts.  Specifically we will focus our explorations on the topics of women and human rights, the environment, and animal welfare and protection. While visiting local sites we will learn about the challenges and opportunities that face people in Cambodia today. We will also visit both rural and urban locations and examine how Cambodia is trying to achieve real and lasting peace after over a decade of war.
