Fika Without Borders Sri Lanka

Orjuela Camilla Globala studier Gšteborgs universitetOn Thursday 26 May, 17-19 SASA continued its Fika Without Borders series with a lecture by Camilla Orjuela, Associate Professor in Peace and Development Research at University of Gothenburg. She will hold a lecture entitled: Struggles about justice in post-war Sri Lanka.

It is now seven years since the long and brutal civil war in Sri Lanka ended. Many questions remain about how to deal with the county’s violent past. In September 2015, the Sri Lankan government co-sponsored a resolution in the United Nations Human Rights Council in which it committed to investigate human rights violations during the war. This lecture looks into how the process of transitional justice in Sri Lanka is proceeding. It looks at the challenges for reconciliation and the new and old conflicts that emerge in the struggles about post-war justice.

As usual we served delicious South Indian snacks and tea!

Venue: the basement floor at Lund University External Relations (ER) building, Stora Algatan 4, Lund.
