CAMBODIA AND THE ARAB SPRING

Sam Rainsy was cited by Carl Gershman, president of the Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) in his lecture “Democracy’s New Moment: A Forward Strategy for Advancing Freedom in the World” given at New York University on March 1, 2011.

“The events in the Middle East are still unfolding, and it will probably be many years before we know if the transformation that has now begun will lead to a region and a world that is more democratic, more modern, and more peaceful.  The transitions will encounter many obstacles and setbacks ….

“Still, these revolutions have been historic, and their impact has already been felt far beyond the Middle East.  This became clear to me last Friday when I was visited by Sam Rainsy, an exiled democratic dissident from Cambodia.  He looked at me with a glow in his eye and said: ‘They showed that it can be done.  Now people have the idea that change is possible, and that’s the most important thing of all.’ “
