    The report of a project exploring human security and land rights in Cambodia. The project used a human security framework to address two questions: (1) What kind of insecurities do people in areas with land disputes have, and who is most insecure? (2) What provides people with security, and how does land policy relate to other sources of security over land? The study involved more than 400 participants in Kampong Chhnang, Ratanakiri, and Phnom Penh. The study shows that insecurity over land is about wider issues of poverty environment and livelihood insecurity.
