Abstract

The Internet and social media are thought to be democratising tools, especially in contexts where democratic participation is limited due either to political apathy from the citizens or to authoritarian control. Social media, in particular, allows people to access information not available in mainstream media, connect with like-minded people, mobilise resources and communicate directly with politicians. This paper complements existing understanding by looking at how political contest and control play out in the Cambodian social media landscape by focusing on Facebook pages of Cambodia’s ruling party leader and opposition party leader.
