FY 2014/2015 Research Topic: C-02
Post War Economic Issues and Challenges in Sri Lanka


This project aims to examine Sri Lanka’s economy, which has been sidelined under the shadow of the longstanding ethnic conflict. We will explore the relationship between the conflict and socio-economic development, as well as several issues which are considered to be important for understanding the current Sri Lanka economy.
