News: SRI LANKAN SOVEREIGNTY, NON NEGOTIABLE!
Posted Date: 17/05/2018 (Thursday)
Sri Lankan sovereignty, its supremacy in domestic policy and independence in foreign policy, is under a two-pronged attack: • At the UN Human Rights Council, the attack is led by US neoconservatives who aggressively promote direct, unilateral, preventive, and pre-emptive intervention, including military, in the internal affairs of sovereign States; • Within Sri Lanka, their ideological counterparts, the neoliberals, lead the attack on the economic front. In Geneva, the pretext is alleged war crimes; in Sri Lanka, bad governance and corruption.

News: The Global Report on Internal Displacement 2018 is out
Posted Date: 17/05/2018 (Thursday)
The Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID) is IDMC’s annual overview of the world’s most significant situations of internal displacement. It highlights the policies and investments needed to address the issue and flags current knowledge and data gaps. This year’s GRID presents data on internal displacement for 2017. Results show that the number of new internal displacements caused both by conflict and disasters reached 30.6 million. Those associated with conflict and violence almost doubled, from 6.9 million in 2016 to 11.8 million in 2017. New displacements associated with disasters accounted for 18.8 million. The report also includes regional overviews and specific country spotlights that provide more in-depth analysis.

Posted Date: 17/05/2018 (Thursday)
The leader of the UK Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn MP, has said that “the rights of Tamils to decide their own future is central” to resolving many of the post armed conflict issues in Sri Lanka. Addressing more than 150 guests at a packed event in Parliament, on Wednesday 16 May, to mark the 9th anniversary of Mullivaikal, Mr Corbyn said that a future Labour Government will be committed to “international justice” and that the Labour Party, now and in the future, supports “serious action to bring about peace and justice” in Sri Lanka.

News: How 'unconditional' is China's foreign aid?
Posted Date: 16/05/2018 (Wednesday)
Chinese foreign aid is often referred to as having "no political strings attached," and is therefore a more attractive option for many non-Western countries. But is it really free of constraints? For a long time, China was seen as a foreign aid recipient rather than a donor. It was only in 2007 that China started contributing to the International Development Association, the lending arm of the World Bank, and has since steadily increased its aid to developing countries, especially those in East Asia.

News: China's Pacific aid push backfiring, Australian officials believe
Posted Date: 15/05/2018 (Tuesday)
Senior Australian officials believe Pacific Island and Asian nations are reassessing the value of receiving Chinese foreign aid after seeing Beijing's heavy-handed treatment of them when they seek debt relief. As a new independent report presented to the US State Department, as revealed by The Australian Financial Review, warns China is creating a “debt trap” for smaller nations in a bid to upend the strategic balance of power, officials in Canberra hope that greater public exposure of Beijing's tactics will shame the Chinese into changing its predatory practices and ultimately forgive the loans.

News: China Clears $1 Billion Road In Sri Lanka, Countering India Influence
Posted Date: 15/05/2018 (Tuesday)
China has approved a $1 billion loan to revive a long-delayed expressway in central Sri Lanka, the island's government said Monday. Construction of the first phase of the road linking the capital Colombo with the hill resort of Kandy had been delayed for more than two years due to a lack of foreign funding, according to local media reports.

News: Memories Of Late K.G Amaradasa – An Ardent Tamil Literary Lover & Advocate For National Unity
Posted Date: 13/05/2018 (Sunday)
“Some might say that if a Sinhala man marries a Tamil woman or a Tamil man marries a Sinhala woman, then national unity will be born. I don’t think so. If people of different ethnic origin get married, only the children would be born as a natural consequence” quipped Ven. M Ratnavansa Thero – a Buddhist monk much loved and respected by Tamil writers and community members alike. Late K.G. Amaradasa is someone of similar calibre who also held the strong belief that national unity is not a one-way street. He is a remarkable man who learned and excelled in the Tamil literature and who pioneered the way in introducing the great Tamil national poet Mahakavi Barathiyar to the Sinhala people.

News: The OMP and the Aspirations of Families of the Missing and Disappeared
Posted Date: 12/05/2018 (Saturday)
The first permanent official body created to search and trace missing persons in Sri Lanka is the Office on Missing Persons (OMP) established under Act No. 14 of 2016. This was done to comply with a recommendation in the 2015 UNHRC Resolution which was co-sponsored by the Government of Sri Lanka. However the office was set up about two years after the Act was passed. It started functioning only in May 2018 with members visiting Mannar to meet the victims of disappearances in that District. Following the conclusion of the war in May 2009, there was a clamour by the families of

News: Aadhaar for Sri Lanka? Women’s labour and the demand for social welfare
Posted Date: 11/05/2018 (Friday)
International Labour Day on 1 May was honoured in Sri Lanka by several major trade unions and other Left organisations. This was despite the Government’s attempts to ‘shift’ May Day to 7 May, to prevent it from ‘overlapping’ with Vesak Poya. The decision to shift a day that honours labour rights in order to make space for a religious holiday – particularly one which is observed by the majority community – is not a neutral one. Cat’s Eye felt this was a good moment to reflect on the path we have taken in Sri Lanka:

News: China's foreign policy principles under stress
Posted Date: 10/05/2018 (Thursday)
AS China's power and economic strength have grown, its practices in the outside world have come to appear increasingly out of synchrony with its declared bases for international relations. In negotiations with India in 1954, China proposed that relations between the two states should be founded on certain fundamental principles. The proposed guidelines were embodied in a treaty between the two states and were subsequently advanced as an essential element in China's relations with other countries. They were known as the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence:
