Abstract

Of the many women who face violence at the hands of their partners in Cambodia, relatively few seek outside help. Previous research suggests that of those women who do seek help, many do not receive gender-sensitive assitance or access to justice, but are instead revictimized or otherwise put at risk. Such women often approach their their local authories for help. THey receive assitance usually taking the form of a variety of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, especially reconciliation/conciliation and mediation. Such local justice processes are often reported to be preferred by women and local authorities alike compared to court-based resolutions, which are seen as expensive, time consuming, and geographically distant.
