How Can Scholars Contribute to the Development of Cambodia? by Kimkong Heng

“In any society, scholars, researchers, academics, professionals, and other highly educated individuals have an important role to play to contribute to the development of their country. In Cambodia, as is also true elsewhere, there are certain moral expectations that intellectuals or scholars must take part in fostering the positive development of Cambodian society. The expectations are high and have been embedded in the role of this group of educated people.”

Heng Kimkong is a co-founder of Cambodian Education Forum, a Visiting Senior Fellow at the Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Education at the University of Queensland, Australia funded by Australia Award.
