This is a free speech zone where you can discuss and debate everything Cambodia related. Cambodia Speakeasy is Cambodia's leading expat discussion forum.
An ad in today's Cambodia Daily indicates that the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs is seeking, through the Asia Foundation, a consultant for 12 days work at a cost of $5,000 (....) to produce a manual 'that can be used anywhere should there be an interest' (.....) documenting how to "monitor TV channels and record incidents of IPV (emotional, sexual, physical....Intimate Partner Violence"
Aid was provided to Cambodia in the late 80's/90's to feed and clothe hungry children - now it is being used to teach people how to watch TV....
Also what priorities does the Australian Government show when it leaves refugees (including children) to rot on Nauru due to a lack of funds but yet has funds to teach Cambodians ('should there be an interest') how to watch TV????????
i don't get it
how are the two connected? (monitoring TV channels and recording incidents of iPV)
"Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going. Don’t freeze up.”
I presume it relates to examining the prevalence of IPV that occurs on TV channels.
Violence against women is one of Australia’s most significant public health problems. It refers to acts of gender-based violence that cause or have the potential to cause physical, sexual, emotional, mental and/or economic harm.
Evidence-based primary prevention of violence against women is a new and emerging field but there are promising strategies for prevention. This evidence highlights the importance of challenging cultural and social norms that condone, tolerate or excuse violence against women. It is within this context that the news and information media – a dominant force in shaping the discourse on matters of public importance – is seen to play a crucial role.

Commercials on TV are so good they make you slap your wife.
"There can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order. They will have to be physically separated and expelled from society." - Hans-Hermann Hoppe
That resource was posted as background and information to answer Violets question, which I think it does. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade are supporting the Cambodian Department of Womens Affairs to help reduce violence towards women. The organisation doing the work on prevention of intimate partner violence is the Asia Foundation http://asiafoundation.org/ They use a number of strategies to attempt to achieve their objective. One of which is Reduce TV content that condones violence against women, through strategies including media programming research......and violence in media monitoring.
They are asking for someone to:
Document the media monitoring process and to draft a user friendly media monitoring guideline/manual - a "how to implement a media monitoring system" approach.
Seems ok to me. Who AusAid supports depends on the focus of the government in power. When I was working with AusAid in the 90's here the focus was on strengthening health service capacity. When Keating was in power I was involved with Aboriginal Health. That was the focus. When Tony Abbott was in power it was all about stop the boats For the record I had nothing to do with that
Could you provide a link to this ad? I've search CD and Asia Foundation and can only find a reference from 2016 on IPV. Thanks.

Research Reveals Cambodian Television Rife with Depictions of Violence Against Women
November 30, 2016 By Seila Sar
Earlier this year, The Asia Foundation conducted media monitoring research to examine VAW occurrences in the five largest national broadcasters in Cambodia: Bayon, CTN, Hang Meas, MyTV, and TV5 which, together, account for almost 80 percent of total viewership. The first six months into the research revealed that, across all the five channels monitored, 33 percent of aired programs from March to August 2016 contained scenes depicting VAW—either physical, sexual, or emotional. And, the research revealed that almost half of the drama programs aired on the five channels contained scenes depicting VAW.
^^ Thanks again.
Good on ya!
