We were very pleased to invite Prof. Satoru Kobayashi from Kyoto University to give us a comprehensive lecture about Cambodian rural society. Prof. Kobayashi introduced production-oriented and life-oritented viewpoint of development in Cambodia, basic information of rural livelihoods in Cambodia, particularly in Pursat Province where OFW team will visit in August 2017. He also introduced basic social structure, and the intersections between buddhist activities and rural development in Cambodia. The lecture gave us many important information and hints for students to prepare for their research plan.
