Abstract:
Purpose: To provide an overview of the issue of acid attack violence against women in Cambodia, predominately perpetrated by women as a result of sexual jealously or financial disputes. Background: The survivors are an ignored and isolated group. This paper examines structural, human and contextual factors of why this form of torture is often the chosen method of retribution. Design: The research project used interviews with key stakeholder group representatives and investigated how realistic the initiatives proposed by the local non-government organisation (LNGO) LICADHO (Cambodian League for the Promotion and Defense of Human Rights) are in addressing the needs of women acid attack survivors in Cambodia. In addition, the experiences of acid attack survivors in Bangladesh and the innovative responses by a LNGO will also be discussed. This paper should be of interest to representatives from gender, legal and disability advocates and NGOs.
