Hun Sen’s Cambodia

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen is one of the longest-serving leaders in the world, having retained power since 1985. Following his government’s dissolution of the opposition party in 2017 and exile of its leaders, Hun Sen’s Cambodian People’s Party won the 2018 elections unchallenged, raising major questions about the future of democracy in Cambodia. In this episode we are joined by Sebastian Strangio to discuss Prime Minister Hun Sen, what his endgame seems to be, and what that can tell us about where Cambodia is headed.

He now serves as the Southeast Asia Editor at The Diplomat. We hope you enjoy this episode of the Hopkins Podcast on Foreign Affairs.
