This photograph shows a view of the bas-relief on the 117-metre-long engraved base of the Win-Win Monument. It depicts the UNTAC (United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia) mission (1992-93). Different emblematic scenes are represented, such as the return of Prince Norodom Sihanouk and the demilitarisation of different factions under the monitoring of UN peacekeepers.
The Win-Win Monument complex – photographed here in January 2020 – was inaugurated in December 2018 to mark the twentieth anniversary of the end of the post-Democratic Kampuchea civil war, with the final defection of the remaining Khmer Rouge factions, thanks to the DIFID policy (“Divide, Isolate, Finish, Integrate, Develop”) also known as the “Win Win” policy of Prime Minister Hun Sen.
