In the most in-depth look at education in Cambodia to date, scholars long engaged in research on Cambodia provide historical context and unpack key issues of high relevance to Cambodia and other developing countries as they expand and modernize their education systems and grapple with challenges to providing a quality and equitable education.
This book is a highly relevant source of information for education policy makers and planners, and will help researchers to understand the innovative way to analyse educational reforms and capacity development in developing countries.

Yasushi Hirosato and Yuto Kitamura Developing countries, including Southeast Asian countries, face an enormous challenge in ensuring equitable access to quality education in the context of deepening globalization and increasing international competition. They must simultaneously meet the goals of Education for All (EFA) at the basic education level and of developing a more sophisticated workforce required by the knowledge-based economy at the post-basic, especially tertiary, education level. To meet this challenge, developing countries need to reform/renovate their education systems and service deliveries as an integral part of national development. However, most of them have not yet fully developed the individual, institutional, and system capacities in undertaking necessary education reforms, especially under decentralization and privatization requiring new roles at various (central and local, or public and private) levels of administration and stakeholders. Provided that an ultimate vision of educational development and cooperation in the twenty-first century would be to develop indigenous capacity in engineering education reforms, this book analyzes the overall education reform context and capacity, including the status of sector program support using the sector-wide approach (SWAp)/program-based approach (PBA) in developing countries. We also address how different stakeholders have been interacting in order to promote equitable access to quality education, particularly from the perspectives of capacity development under the system of decentralization.

This book documents experimentation with various policy and governance approaches that produce structural differences in the composition and organisation of Asia’s higher education systems. In view of the wide variation in the public and private provision of higher education, it showcases how issues of access, equity and modes of participation are addressed, how institutional and programme quality are managed and how academic labour is treated and developed. The book both maps these differences and analyses the country-level dynamics, policy approaches and the problems faced by a variety of states in Asia in the race to develop competitive higher education systems. Focusing on the intersection of governance and higher education policy, it addresses the challenges facing higher education in Asia and the national responses of governments in terms of the organisation of the sector.

Language policies and practices are controversial in many parts of the world, and are an important focus for comparative study in the field of education. This book makes a major contribution to conceptual debates and understanding. The book is grounded in the broad, international literature on this topic, and presents deep insights from the case of Cambodia during the decade from 1979. During this period, key elements of Cambodia's governance were controlled by the authorities in neighboring Vietnam. The type of linguistic and cultural dominance brought by this control was substantially different from that in most other parts of the world. As noted by Mark Ginsburg in the Foreword, Clayton's analysis of hegemony and pragmatism will attract a broad audience in the fields of language policy studies and comparative education, as well as among scholars concerned specifically with Cambodia.

Based on ethnographic fieldwork in a rural community, this dissertation examines how changes in Cambodia's political economy shape the daily lives of youth and their families. After three decades of violent conflict and socialist planning, Cambodia's economy was liberalized in the 1990s. Since then, rural spaces have been incorporated more deeply into a market economy, traditional agrarian livelihoods have become less viable, and inequality has grown dramatically. My work reveals the anxieties of trying to live a comfortable and meaningful life in this time of uncertainty. I argue that as young people and their families respond to economic pressures, kin have become ever more dependent upon one another and intergenerational relationships have been reworked. Each chapter illustrates how these shifts are felt in intimate ways in the spaces of homes and schools. I begin by looking at the rapid growth of microfinance indebtedness, and how it deepens intergenerational dependency. Next, I analyze how the commercialization of the wedding industry and the concomitant rise in bridewealth prices have destabilized the traditional life course for young men. I then illustrate how rural families increasingly invest in their children's education in an attempt to secure their economic future. Finally, I examine how youth are critical of local corruption because it pressures them to rely on their families for money and connections in order to achieve their educational and career aspirations. My research advances the youth studies literature by moving beyond the analysis of a single age group to look at young people's experiences within the context of their familial relationships. It also deepens our understanding of how capitalist transformations underway in Cambodia and beyond are felt in people's everyday lives.
