Benny Widyono is the author of Dancing in Shadows: Sihanouk, the Khmer Rouge, and the United Nations in Cambodia, (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., New York, October 2007).

After 27 years of international amnesia over bringing the Khmer Rouge to justice, and following six years of intense negotiations between the United Nations and the Government of Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge tribunal, officially known as the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), was established in 2006. The tribunal is a UN-assisted national court, with international participation of prosecutors and judges.
