Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam)

The Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) is an organization whose main objective is to investigate the recent history of Cambodia, and recovery of historical memory of the victims of the dictatorship that plagued Cambodia under the command of the Khmer Rouge.
On their website you can find texts like this, in wich they show their objectives and purposes and the way they in they are working.

"DC-Cam has two main objectives. The first is to record and preserve the history of the Khmer Rouge regime for future generations. The second is to compile and organize information that can serve as potential evidence in a legal accounting for the crimes of the Khmer Rouge. These objectives represent our promotion of memory and justice, both of which are critical foundations for the rule of law and genuine national reconciliation in Cambodia."
