This essay attempts to describe, with objectivity and precision, the reason for the establishment of sociology in Cambodia, which has suffered a tragic and radical revolution. Sociology in Cambodia is a young science whose roots lie in the desire for rebirth, the will to understand the endemic social and political chaos of the country, and the need to provide an answer to the causes of genocide. The founding of the first Department of Sociology at the Royal University of Phnom Penh in 1994 demonstrates the interest of the political and cultural authorities in this discipline, which is seen as an indispensable aid to the new course set by the nation.
