Sri Lanka

More than five years after the conclusion of three decades of armed conflict, Sri Lanka’s leaders and citizens are confronting the daunting challenge of recovering lost economic ground, bridging regional disparities, and healing social divides. The Asia Foundation remains committed to helping Sri Lanka achieve long-term peace and prosperity by strengthening institutions of governance and improving the environment for economic growth, security, and justice. Foundation programs seek to improve the policy and regulatory environment for broad-based economic growth and development; to advance local democracy and access to justice; to help communities and individuals recover from trauma and violence; and to promote citizens’ participation in the decisions that affect their communities.
