Information/Education Division - Analysis Unit

The Analysis/Assessment Unit of UNTAC's Information/Education Division was one of the Division's four principal units, the other three being Production, Dissemination, and Control (originally a part of Analysis/Assessment). The Analysis/Assessment Unit, composed mainly of Khmer-speaking staff members, travelled throughout Cambodia to gauge Cambodians' responses to UNTAC-produced materials and to assess general perceptions of UNTAC.

Series also includes daily press briefings from the UNTAC spokesman, miscellaneous records related to various Cambodian political factions, and records pertaining to other UNTAC components/units.
