Transitional Justice in Sri Lanka: Moving Beyond Promises

Categories: All DocumentsBookDocumentsResearch and Advocacy

Sri Lanka has accumulated a terrible legacy of human rights violations with successive governments making numerous promises in the area of transitional justice. Years on, however, the legitimate demands of victims for truth and justice have not gone away.

The publication ‘Transitional Justice in Sri Lanka: Moving Beyond Promises’ edited by Bhavani Fonseka includes several chapters that examine the different dimensions of transitional justice in Sri Lanka and ideas for reforms. This book is premised on promises made in 2015 by the then Government of Sri Lanka and brings together contributions from national and international experts who examine the multiple issues that require attention.
