Financial Challenges and their Possible Effects on Proceedings

Show Summary Details


By relying on voluntary funding to finance their shares of the budget of the Cambodian Extraordinary Chambers (CEC), both the United Nations (UN) and the Cambodian Government are creating uncertainty, jeopardizing long-term planning and risking the perceived impartiality of the CEC. Lessons from the Special Court for Sierra Leone suggest that the UN may need to fund the CEC through assessed contributions if these risks are to be avoided. This may be politically improbable while the Cambodian Government maintains institutional control of the CEC.
