Transform:- According to researches, Cambodia is not yet in the stage of Spring Change, but Cambodia can be on incremental change. Researches provided few indicators: not like Tunesia or Egypt that their military and armed force are somehow neutral, these countries have not been affected civil wars, and their people are not much traumatized by wars and social ills.
