Course Description:  In this J-term study abroad course, you will have an opportunity to engage with people who are making a difference in their post-war environment (after years of recent civil war at the hands of the Khmer Rouge) in Southeast Asia. Studying in the poorest country in SE Asia, we will explore how a very young population (having lost many men and elders to the civil war) is rebuilding, thus one of the focuses of the course is the role of women and children. We will meet local citizens, engage in service learning, study the political and religious background of the area from native experts, all while observing and learning about life in this land vastly different from our own. Specifically we aim to focus our explorations on the topics of human rights, the environment, animal welfare and protection, and children and women's issues. While visiting local sites we will learn about the challenges and opportunities that face people in modern day Cambodia, based on the past. We will visit both rural and urban locations and examine how Cambodia is trying to achieve real peace after over a decade of war.
