Youth in Cambodia: Access to and use of news media

This is an audience research study that aims to track young people’s use of and access to news and media in Cambodia today.

In the last five years, there has been an apparent shift in the ways young Cambodians access news and information. Access to the internet is no longer limited to content consumption. Content creation is now a major mode of engagement online. Platforms like Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram are reaching a new audience of internet users. In order to support these engaged communities and seek avenues to help the next generation ease into their future, this audience research study aims to better understand young Cambodians’ news perception, media and information-seeking habits.

The study was commissioned by IMS and carried out between June and September 2021.
