« Sri Lanka: Postwar Tamil Activism in Canada » by Daniel Kitts

As part of this week’s online series on Sri Lanka, theagenda.tvo.org had a conversation with members of Canada’s Tamil community about Sri Lanka’s postwar present and future.

Canada’s Tamil community is large but its internal political debates and activism on the Sri Lanka issue is often poorly understood to anyone on the outside.

To better understand Canadian Tamil political activism and how it has evolved since Sri Lanka’s civil war ended in 2009, I spoke with Amarnath Amarasingam, a postdoctoral fellow at York University’s Centre for Refugee Studies, who has researched the issue of Tamil activism in Canada.
