The Victims Support Section at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia is drawing attention to the incidence of forced marriage and other forms of gender-based violence that took place during the Khmer Rouge period through an exhibit and inter-generational dialogues aimed at opening discussion about a topic previously avoided in modern-day Cambodia. The inclusion of forced marriage charges in Case 002-02 against accused persons Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea has prompted a number of such projects that express victims’ experiences including a dance performance telling the stories of three couples forced to marry by the Khmer Rouge regime.
