Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project examines the incident which happened in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. The actions that took place in this period of time, where the Khmer Rouge regime had control of the country of Cambodia, resulted in the deaths of approximately two million people. In this examination, the project identifies the most important factors to which these actions could take place. These factors include different psychological theories, theories regarding evil, and some of the historical events, which had a contributing factor for the peasants who turned into executioners for the regime. Furthermore an analysis of the authentic documentary ‘’Enemies of the People” is made. During which, the project have attempted to explain the evil that is seen, based on the various psychological theories. The project will also, based on the history of Cambodia, and the outlined theories of evil and psychology, attempt to explain the evil, and how it could happen. The purpose of the project has not been to give a definite answer to how it could happen, or if it was indeed evil or not, nor to include every possible factor that played a role. But instead, the project has focused on the most prevalent ones, and examined the evil that happened in Cambodia when it was subjected to the rule of the Khmer Rouge.
