News: Why does reconciliation in Sri Lanka matter to the UK?
Posted Date: 05/10/2018 (Friday)
Next year Sri Lanka will have enjoyed 10 uninterrupted years free from the misery of armed conflict. Whatever your view on how Sri Lanka has progressed since, that very fact alone is one to cherish.

It was a stark reminder of how much all communities in Sri Lanka have suffered

News: Sri Lanka doesn’t deserve more time at the UN Human Rights Council
Posted Date: 04/10/2018 (Thursday)
A recent Daily FT op-ed (‘Transitional justice efforts in Sri Lanka fall short’) correctly explains that the implementation of the Coalition Government’s transitional justice agenda has gone terribly. The author then suggests that further (and similar) UN Human Rights Council involvement might encourage meaningful reform. “To give the Sri Lankan Government a further chance to make real progress, the council should insist upon clear, time-bound benchmarks and a monitoring framework.”

News: Defiance, thy name is Maithri or what!
Posted Date: 03/10/2018 (Wednesday)
By telling the UN General Assembly “to allow Sri Lankan people to solve their problems on their own” and adding that “as an independent country we do not want any foreign power to exert influence on us”, President Maithripala Sirisena may have let the cat among the global pigeons – or, is it a mixed metaphor, where the terms ‘cat’ and ‘pigeons’ are inter-changeable? If one were to recall the not-so-infrequent posting of the social media visual, the mouse may be chasing the cat all around the kitchen, for a change!

In a Cabinet decision mentioned at a weekly media briefing on December 12 last year, among 35 decisions announced was a proposal that was part of a process that would radically transform the land use patterns on Sri Lanka’s plantations.

News: Rupee Haemorrhage
Posted Date: 02/10/2018 (Tuesday)
The falling Sri Lankan Rupee is now at the centre of discussions about the economy. Is this problem due to the US Dollar strengthening along with increasing interest rates in the United States? Is it a consequence of flawed trade policies that have maintained much higher levels of imports relative to exports? Or is it an outcome of opening our economy to the inflow and flight of finance capital? These debates, politically charged and partisan as they are, provide

News: In memory of Sarah O’Connor, a victim of the Windrush scandal. Sarah’s death should not pass without us condemning the horror of the ‘hostile environment’ policy set up by Theresa May
Posted Date: 01/10/2018 (Monday)
Sarah O’Connor, one of the most prominent victims of the Windrush scandal, was found dead at her home on Sunday 16 Sept. She was just 57 year old- by all accounts this is a life cut short in this day and age when females from all ethnicities on the average live well into their seventies or eighties.
