Genocide Watch staff have published the fifteenth Timestream in a series of critical genocides in the world.

This Timestream covers the Cambodian Genocide committed by the Khmer Rouge from 1975-1979 in which between 1.5 and 2 million Cambodians died. The Khmer Rouge targeted former regime officials, intellectuals, Chinese, Thai, Cham, Vietnamese, Buddhists, Muslims, and Christians in particular. In 2003, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia was set up following a 1997 request to try the Khmer Rouge leaders and bring justice to the victims of the genocide.
