LICADHO works closely with grassroots communities, human rights defenders and activists to monitor, document and investigate human rights abuses in Cambodia. A Cambodian non-governmental organisation, LICADHO has been at the forefront of efforts to protect civil, political, economic and social rights in Cambodia, and to promote respect for these rights by the Cambodian government and institutions.

Since its establishment in 1992, LICADHO's work has changed to meet the demands of the dynamic human rights situation and the evolving needs of communities and activists in Cambodia. LICADHO's primary activities of monitoring, intervention, documentation and advocacy aim to promote accountability of government officials and non-state actors, as well as amplify community voices both domestically and internationally.

In addition to its human rights monitoring, LICADHO has developed an in-house team of prison monitors; doctors and medical professionals; lawyers and paralegals; and social workers to meet the ever-changing demands of communities and provide more holistic services to clients. LICADHO has also strengthened its networks to include Indigenous communities, women activists, land activists, unions and partner organisations to support their advocacy efforts and work.
