News: Sri Lanka: A Lesson for U.S. Strategy
Posted Date: 26/08/2015 (Wednesday)
Sri Lanka provides a glimpse of small power-great power relations in a future multipolar world order. For much of the period since its independence, Sri Lanka attracted scant regard throughout the West. At the culmination of its civil war, some attention did begin to be paid to human rights issues. In the last few years, however, Sri Lanka has begun to feature as a country of strategic relevance to the great powers. For one, it sits at the center of the Indian Ocean, likely to be one of the world’s most strategically contested regions in the coming century. Sri Lanka is also halfway between China and its energy sources in the Middle East, something Beijing had responded to largely successfully until January this year when Mahinda Rajapaksa lost the presidency.

News: Changing political dynamics
Posted Date: 26/08/2015 (Wednesday)
The parliamentary election held on Aug. 17 represented a seismic shift in the political culture of Sri Lanka. In the past, there was a culture of violence and corruption to the hilt. But this time, following the change of leadership that took place in January, it was clear a new atmosphere had emerged. In the months following the January presidential election, the victors made good governance a keynote theme of the new administration. However, the government — still a minority in parliament — struggled to implement legal reform.

News: Sri Lanka says good riddance to Rajapaksa
Posted Date: 23/08/2015 (Sunday)
Sri Lankan voters have dealt a decisive blow to the comeback ambitions of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa, who ran the island nation of 20m people in authoritarian style for a decade. Their rejection of his bid for the premiership almost certainly ends his chances of leading the country again. It also opens up the possibility of the former strongman being investigated for both corruption and human rights violations. He denies both accusations.

News: Sri Lankan Tamil Brides Reject Grooms Demanding Dowries
Posted Date: 05/08/2015 (Wednesday)
During and since Sri Lanka’s long civil war, members of the Tamil community have re-examined cultural traditions. While arranged marriages remain common, young people increasingly decline to request or offer dowries, a custom they say disrespects the equality of women and turns marriage into an economic exchange. Older Tamils defend the custom, saying dowries help young couples establish economic security. “Marriage should not be a trade between two families. It’s time to change. It’s two lives that matter, not dowries, says Usha Thevathas, 25, teacher and a prospective bride
