Policy Lab was designed to develop a considered and critical policy culture in Cambodia through engagement with, and connections between, multiple levels of Cambodian civil society, working towards equitable development through policy conception and implementation. By engaging mentors from existing civil society organizations, the Policy Lab initiative can embed the program more deeply and ensure maximum sustainable impact and engagement.
