Salient Aspects of Public Interest Litigation Jurisprudence in Sri Lanka

Categories: BookDocuments

This book explores the role of Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in strengthening civil society’s contribution to public policy-making in Sri Lanka. At its inception, PIL was identified as a key activity of the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), founded on the belief that citizens should have the opportunity to petition the court and highlight substantive issues, regardless of the judgment or direction of the court. Through a range of essays covering areas from IDP and land rights to gender and public finance, this publication confirms the importance of PIL in a functioning constitutional democracy and encourages citizens to pursue this option for the protection and enhancement of their rights.
