Besides the intensive academic program, participants of the Global Politics Seasonal School in Cambodia are exploring Phnom Penh on a river cruise and guided city tour.

While the Global Politics Seasonal Schools are mainly aimed at conveying academic contents, the Seasonal Schools also want the participants to get an insight into the local culture of each target region. Therefore, this year's GPSS Cambodia took the students on a cruise along the Tonle Sap (the "large river"). While having dinner together, the participants had the chance to get to know each other and engage in further discussions on questions some of the lecturers had raised before. Prof. Segbers, Dr. Weiss and Ratana Som - our representatives of each partner university - took part in the cruise as well.
On Saturday, the students also went on a guided tour through the city. The tour took them to the Royal Palace, Wat Phnom (a Buddhist Temple), the National Museum and the Foreign Correspondents' Club (FCC).
Later this week, the students will also visit the German Embassy. They will be welcomed by Daniela Dempf, First Secretary and Deputy Head of Mission. The talk will give insight into the history of German-Cambodian relations and current projects on site.
