The Role and Relevance of Transitional Arrangements in Negotiating a Political Settlement in Sri Lanka

The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), Colombo, Sri Lanka and the Institute of Federalism (IF), Fribourg, Switzerland organised the 2nd conference of the Locarno Process from the 15th to 17th April 2002 in Murten, Switzerland on “The Role and Relevance of Transitional Arrangements in Negotiating a Political Settlement in Sri Lanka”. The conference enabled participants to reflect on their understanding of the cease-fire agreement and to what extent strategies of the respective parties and stakeholders would animate and inform peace processes in the short, medium and long-term within the framework of a sustainable cease-fire incorporating human rights norms. The report of the proceedings is available here. The background paper by Mr. Kethesh Loganathan and Mr. Asanga Welikala is available here.

Centre for Policy Alternatives

The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) was formed in 1996 in the firm belief that there is an urgent need to strengthen institution- and capacity-building for good governance and conflict transformation in Sri Lanka and that non-partisan civil society groups have an important and constructive contribution to make to this process. Focusing primarily on issues of governance and conflict resolution, CPA is committed to programmes of research and advocacy through which public policy is critiqued, alternatives identified and disseminated.
