The Regional Forum is one of the means through which the VSS implements its project on wider

judical proceedings of Case 002. The purpose of the Regional Forum is to promote victims’ articipation by providing a safe venue and opportunity dialogue for CPs from those provinces:
- To meet Civil Party Lawyers to discuss their rights at the trial stage, as well as, to generate ideas
from Civil Parties on collective reparations in order to formulate their civil claim ;
- To meet officials from various offices of the ECCC and civil society representatives in order to
learn about recent progress of ECCC; and
- To meet CPs of Case 001 in order to learn about their experiences for a better involvement in
Case 002.
Regional Civil Party Forums had been successfully organized respective in 2011: Kratie, Kampot,
Svay Rieng, Kampong Chhnang and now in Siem Reap Province. From 2009 to 2011, the VSS had
organized 9 Regional Forums for 2,615 Civil Party applications and Civil Parties, who are from the 24
