The Legal Aid Sector in Sri Lanka: Searching for Sustainable Solutions – A Mapping of Legal Aid Services in Sri Lanka

The Mapping of Legal Aid Services in Sri Lanka titled, “The Legal Aid Sector in Sri Lanka: Searching for Sustainable Solutions,” was initiated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) as part of an overall analysis of the legal aid sector in the country. The study was carried out by The Asia Foundation as part of its contribution to legal aid in Sri Lanka during a period spanning over a decade. The study looks at the formal legal aid service provision sector in Sri Lanka and attempts to identify gaps and challenges aimed at recommending changes for a more comprehensive legal aid system that is accessible to all.
