The Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace (CICP), established in 1993 by H.R.H Samdech Norodom Sirivudh, is Cambodia’s oldest foreign policy think tank and leading platform for Track 2 foreign affairs dialogue. CICP strives to stimulate viable, policy-based research to address a range of challenges and promote balanced debate on the critical issues affecting Cambodia and the region. Over the course of nearly 30 years, CICP has engaged with analysts, scholars, and diplomats from across the globe to examine the geopolitical, security, social, and economic questions that impact both Cambodia as well as Southeast Asia as a whole.
CICP is ranked 32nd out of 100 think tanks in Southeast Asia by the Lauder Index at the University of Pennsylvania. As an institution, CICP is grounded in three simple terms: objective, neutral, and independent. It engages without bias and seeks to motivate stronger policy-oriented academic research in the Kingdom and actively partners with a diverse set of actors in order to strengthen research capacity in Cambodia and support the country’s national security, development, and sovereignty as well as promote regional integration.
Under the Ponlok Chomnes Program, the Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace will utilize the support for the following activities:
