Memorialisation and Reparations: Report of Dialogues
This report captures the key themes arising from four dialogues on
memorialisation and reparations in Jaffna, Trincomalee, Colombo and
Galle led and facilitated by local and international resource persons. The
dialogues intended to gather perspectives from the grassroots in order to
influence decision makers and create understanding of these concepts
among the community.
The dialogues revealed the deep cleavages that exist across ethnic and
geographical lines in Sri Lanka on the issues of memorialisation and
reparations, and highlights the challenge that policymakers and the
government face in bridging these gaps in order to create an inclusive
process of memorialisation and reparations.
