Cambodian Journalists Alliance Association
CamboJA is the only independent network of professional journalists in Cambodia which has been formed by a number of journalists, including former reporters of the Cambodia Daily and Phnom Penh Post which faced government repression in the lead up to 2018 general elections.
In the context of growing restrictions on the media freedom and freedom of expression, CamboJA was initiated by more than 20 professional journalists from different media outlets during a meeting on media situation in Cambodia in February 2019.
Eventually, 15 of them agreed to form a governing body of CamboJA and became board members, aiming to establish a sustainable independent body that can carry out a mission to promote access to information and press freedom, strengthen the professionalism of journalists, and support their livelihoods.
Our performance is guided by the five core values presented as the following.
