Realizing Rights and Reconciling After Conflict
(February 2016 December 2018)
This is a series of inter-related initiatives, undertaken by ICES that intend to seize the opportunities afforded by the new political regime to engage in initiatives that promote reconciliation, human rights, accountable governance and the rule of law.
The research component of the initiative seeks to generate a body of knowledge that enhances understanding about dealing with the past, institutional reform and the challenges in promoting diversity and pluralism in Sri Lanka and how these might be overcome. The research also looked at how excluded communities could participate in and contribute to national development and reconciliation. Through this research ICES has sought to generate alternative perspectives and to create a platform for a critical discussion on post-war developments and reconciliation policies, processes and practices.
