The Relationship Between Truth Seeking and Prosecution
This reports summarizes the discussion of a meeting on the The
Relationship between Truth-Seeking and Prosecution held at the
International Centre for Ethnic Studies (ICES) in May 2016.
The objective of the meeting was to help refine and contribute to the
further development of the transitional justice architecture proposed by
the Government, as well as to strengthen stakeholders understanding of
the issues, and identify challenges. Through this meeting ICES sought to
create a robust discussion that would elicit specific recommendations
with the potential to inform and shape the truth-seeking and prosecution
structures and processes to be initiated by the Sri Lankan Government.
The meeting sought to contribute constructively to the practice and policy
on transitional justice, specifically in relation to truth-seeking and
prosecution, within both civil society and political society
