“From Post-War to Post-Conflict Reconciliation is pivotal” by Dr. Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu

“At the outset, I want to make what I consider is an important distinction in terms of the situation we are in. The distinction is between a post–war situation and a post-conflict one. Whilst we are in a post-war situation- the guns having fallen silent following the military defeat of the LTTE – I do not think we are in a post-conflict one, defined in terms of one in which the roots of conflict are not being sustained and certainly not being reproduced. My concern is that the trajectory of developments, since May 2009, has largely been in the direction of the sustenance and reproduction of the roots of conflict.”
