To support RGC’ education reform agenda and
priority, CDRI has also started a research project on
Cambodia’s skill development and education reforms in
mid-2014. The key objective of this project is to produce
CDRI’s flagship volume on the theme
Cambodia Education 2015: Employment
and Empowerment for March 2015 release.
The volume analyses the potential
for anchoring Cambodia’s education for the employment of its
youth and the empowerment of its people, and identifies the
strategic priorities and policy options that would be
crucial for realising that potential. As a preview to
the volume, in August 2014 CDRI released a Working Paper
titled Cambodia’s Skill Gap: An
Anatomy of Issues and Policy Options.
The collaborative work on these two initial policy
research products, and the associated consultation and
collaboration with relevant key relevant stakeholders have provided
a solid foundation for a more ambitious longer term programme that
locates and builds expertise within key Cambodian institutions, and
lays the groundwork for long term institutional collaboration.
Against this background, it is timely to instigate a multi-year
research and policy dialogue programme.
CDRI proposes to implement a
5-year education policy-research programme called the “Research and
Policy Dialogue Programme on Cambodia’s Education Reforms”.
The programme is to
be implemented during 2014-18 with a two-fold objective: to produce
rigorous policy-relevant research products, and to contribute to
evidence-informed education reforms. Two of the major areas for
research and policy dialogue during this five years period will
focus on Professional Education and Training (PET, formerly TVET)
and Higher Education.
