This paper presents a summary of the findings of a participatory actionresearch
Case Study into Indigenous Traditional Legal Systems in Rattanakiri
and Mondulkiri Provinces (the Case Study). The research took place
during March and April 2006. The two main objectives of the Case Study
were: 1)To describe traditional justice systems and practices and develop recommendations to policy-makers on amendments to legal provisions and institutional arrangements which would ensure indigenous peoples have
improved access to justice through both their customary legal practices
and the formal justice system. and 2) To describe some of the difficulties indigenous peoples face in finding just resolutions to their problems outside their villages and to suggest some possible solutions. (excerpt)
