Gregory Poling, Senior Fellow and Director at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and Charles Dunst, associate at The Asia Group and fellow at CSIS, join Jennifer Anderson, Senior Program Officer for CIPE’s Asia and Pacific Team to discuss the implications of Cambodia’s foreign policy as Cambodia hosts the 55th ASEAN Foreign Minister’s meeting.

In this episode, our guests and host discuss the various events that lead to where Cambodia is today, as well as how Cambodia’s open media and civil society environment is slowly beginning to close off. They also highlight China’s involvement in Cambodia, Cambodian’s want for positive relations with the United States, and how the United States can engage with Cambodia given it’s involvement in ASEAN.
