Essays on Federalism in Sri Lanka

Categories: Articles

Essays on Federalism in Sri Lanka is a new collection of essays and articles on the Federal idea in Sri Lanka, edited by Rohan Edrisinha and Asanga Welikala.

CPA has since its inception been at the forefront of the advocacy of federalism as a political and constitutional idea for addressing many of the constitutional problems and anomalies that characterise the Sri Lankan State.

Federalism today finds itself in need of a robust defence. Essays on Federalism in Sri Lanka brings together some of the research and conference papers, speeches, newspaper articles and opinion pieces written in support of the federal idea and federal type constitutional options for and in Sri Lanka in the recent past. The collection has the modest aim of serving as a convenient reference for arguments already made, but which are in need of reiteration.
