From War to Peace: Perspectives from the East

The International Centre for Ethnic Studies (ICES) conducted a workshop entitled “From War to Peace: Perspectives from the East” in Batticaloa on the 26th and 27th of November 2011. The primary objective was to analyze key developments since the end of war and identify the challenges the country faces as it emerges from 30 years of political violence. In this context, the dialogue explored some of the current concerns and discussed recommendations in order to forge a sustainable and long term peace that will benefit all Sri Lankans.
