10 Years on Sri Lanka continues to evade justice

May 2019 marks a decade since the final days of the war in Sri Lanka, a period which saw thousands of people killed and disappeared as Sri Lanka accelerated its genocide against the Tamils. Despite two UN initiated reports, several UN
Human Rights Council resolutions and a multitude of reports by human rights organisations, Tamil victims and survivors are no closer to receiving justice.

What alternative paths exist for Tamil victims and survivors? Is a hybrid mechanism possible? Should a fully international tribunal be sought?

Join us as we explore these questions in conversation with Dr Helen Jarvis, who has been a judge at the 2013 Permanent Peoples Tribunal on Sri Lanka, and has served as Chief of Public Affairs and Chief of Victims Support Section
of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).

We will also be joined by Mr Ana Pararajasingham, who is a political analyst, author and expert on Sri Lankan and Tamil political affairs.
