Over 1000 events have been added to ACLED’s Cambodia dataset — extending coverage back to 2010 — bringing the total number of reported political violence, protests, and other non-violent events in the dataset to nearly 2000. The majority of events in Cambodia during this newly covered time period (2010-2014) continue to be protests and riots, many of which are concentrated in Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh. The 2010-2014 period was, however, also much more volatile, in terms of number of events recorded, relative to more recent years. In particular, 2017 and 2018 have reported a lower average level of events than any years on record, possibly due to increased government crackdown on opposition and demonstrators in the latter half of 2016.
