Economic Literacy and Budget Analysis
Economic Literacy and Budget Analysis The Economic Literacy and Budget Analysis Group (ELBAG) seeks to examine finance related to budget allocation. This entails budget tracking of both national budget and other incomes from donors and foreign aids. ELBAG Cambodia has been working on investigating and scrutinizing the budget for education as its first study. The researcher will endeavor to obtain sources and data which will exhibit government allocation of the budget to the levels of education as well as the actual expenditure of budgets within the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport. Where possible we have provided information on the education system and its programs. This will allow us to see government budget flows andfurthermore, to ascertain and conclude if the money is spent according tothe needs and benefit of all boys and girls or not.

Structural Stigmatization of Sex Workers in Cambodia
Cambodia suffered covert and overt war from the late 1960s until 1997. It was bombed by the US during the Vietnam War (known to Southeast Asians as the American War), and suffered extreme devastation including, in some estimates, the deaths of a quarter of the population under the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975-1979. In 1979, the Vietnamese invaded and defeated the Khmer Rouge, occupying the country for ten years. The Khmer Rouge were still strong in remote areas, along the Thai b order and had the support of China, Thailand and the US who were united with the Khmer Rouge against Vietnam. The Vietnamese pullout in 1989 enabled the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia, which was in place until 1995.

The Impact of Proposed Industrial Zones on Conditions in Cambodian Garment Factories
This report is divided into four parts. Part I provides background information on the Cambodian garment industry. Part II outlines the reasons why the Government plans to open IZs in Cambodia. Part III presents an analysis of the Draft Law and, using information from EPZs in other Asian countries, uses this to predict what the conditions in Cambodian IZs might be like. Part IV critically assesses the purported benefits of opening an IZ in Cambodia. The report concludes that shifting Cambodian garment factories into IZs will lead to a significant drop in labour standards, and that the IZs are unlikely to produce substantial gains for employment, the community, Cambodian industrial development or the economy.

Women and girls that have patiently answered our questions, explained to us, the ignorant, what working in a garment factory means and what kind of hard life is. Women that cried, when remembering the hardship and the discrimination they suffer, women angry when talking about exploitation and abuses, women concentrated when discussing on how to gain strength and power, women brave when facing an audience of thousands with a speech against social rules when all people expect them to cry and ask for pity, women with sparkling eyes chatting about their future out of the factory, women upset when explaining to men what gender discrimination is, women laughing together after a day of discussion. What can be found in these pages is only a pallid image of this experience.

The Multi-Fibre Agreement (MFA), later modified as t he Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC), came into existence in 1974. However, Cambodia was not included in it until the mid-1990s. The country suffered civil war, US bombing and the Khmer Rouge regime in the1970s. In the 1980s it was economically isolated. Not until the United Nations’ intervention in 1992, followed by a national election, d id the country show its face in the international community, and the process of trade liberalisation began to accelerate. The Cambodian garment industry started to grow in the latter half of the 1990s as a result of trade liberalisation and the quo ta system.
