Children’s work and the life skills education policy in Cambodia
Journal of International Development – http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jid.1767/abstract;jsessionid=FB18C2FE42FCD
“This paper discusses the emphasis on raising children’s livelihood skills as part of the Cambodian ‘life skills’ policy. Using policy documents and interview data with education policy makers, it discusses some major concerns with such a policy for a country where child labour is already a widespread national phenomenon.”

The happy and hellish lives of Cambodian rice farmers
USA Today – http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/12/30/being-a-rice-farmer/21045083/
“The world turned blue and green as my sickle swept through rice stalks. Our gang was silent and sweating in the sultry afternoon. The only sound was the crackle of breaking stalks and the slop of feet in monsoon-fed water. An old lady, in baggy pajamas (acceptable daywear in Cambodia), stopped and whirled an armful of stalks into a binding sheaf.”

Understanding Cambodia: Social Hierarchy, Patron-Client Relationships and Power
Center for Southeast Asian Studies: Northern Illinois University – http://www.seasite.niu.edu/khmer/ledgerwood/patrons.htm
“Social relationships in Cambodia, like those across Southeast Asia, are hierarchical. No one is considered equal to anyone else. While within the family social rankings are based upon birth order and sex; those outside the family rest on a combination of factors including (but not limited to): age, wealth, political position, religious piety and sex.”

Older-Age Parents In Rural Cambodia and Migration Of Adult Children
Taylor & Francis – http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/17441730.2013.797297
“Results show that high rates of out-migration do not leave their older parents without alternative means of support. Migrant children often remain in contact by telephone. Most adult children remit money to their parents, but the majority of remittances are small. The analysis presents a picture of an area where people are on the move but families still share resources and time with older adults.”
