"Post-War Reconstruction in Sri Lanka. Prospects and Challenges", edited by Dhammika Herath, Michael Schulz, Kristine Höglund, Kalinga Tudor Silva

News: Dec 22, 2010

This book consists of a collection of papers from the conference “Peace and Development in Sri Lanka” which took place in Kandy, 23-25August 2009. It provides a diversity of views on a range of issues relevant for post-war reconstruction. It serves to facilitate dialogue between the academic community and the practitioners.

The book lays a heavy emphasis on the potential for reconstruction, reconciliation and development in the war-affected regions of Sri Lanka. It is apparent that at the level of planning and implementation, reconstruction and development cannot be addressed by social scientists alone. These are processes that require expertise from both the social and natural sciences. Thus, this book aims to bring together scholars from a number of fields of study; the social sciences as well as the natural and applied sciences. In order to assist in the interaction between practitioners, researchers and doctoral students from a wide spectrum of disciplines, they have been asked to contribute to the book that is organised around the following sub-themes.

  • Peace processes, peace-building and peace-making; failures and future prospects
  • Social reconstruction and reconciliation
  • Physical reconstruction and development
  • International mediation in peace and development
  • International aid and conflict
  • Strengthening of livelihood and development capacities
  • Poverty, vulnerability and conflict
  • Displacement and migration
  • Social and psychological care for the victims of violence
