Sri Lanka: Search for Peace

Alok Bansal (Editor) Sukanya Podder (Editor) M. Mayilvaganan (Editor)
Synopsis The book examines the issues relating to the stalled peace process in Sri Lanka, which was initiated after the cease Fire Agreement (CFA) of February 22, 2002 between the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE. The chapters look at the ground realities, the intentions and capabilities of the players and suggest alternative frameworks for re-starting the peace process. There is consensus among the contributors that in order to strengthen the peace process, it is necessary for the international community, including India to engage both the players and encourage Norwegian facilitation to address the concerns of all parties, including the Muslims, who also have a stake in the outcome. The book has been divided into three sections "Analysing the Conflict and Peace process", "Peace process in Sri Lanka: The External Dimension" and "Alternative/Possible Solutions". It contains chapters by eminent intellectuals, both from India and Sri Lanka, who have sought to cover different facets of the Sri Lankan Conflict and Peace Process from both national and international perspectives. They have critically analysed the reasons for the current impasse and have suggested solutions to the ongoing crisis.
