Truth Seeking and Accountability in Sri Lanka

Wednesday, January 22, 2014
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
ASIL Headquarters, Tillar House

Washington, DC 20008

The call is growing from concerned states, groups and individuals for an international independent investigation into the conduct of Sri Lankan government and military officials during the final months of the country’s nearly three decade long civil war, which ended in May 2009. The panel will examine the availability and effectiveness of investigative mechanisms in addressing the Sri Lankan dilemma. The panel members will share views on adequate truth seeking measures, including independent investigations and truth and reconciliation processes, their relationship with possible accountability resolutions, and potential prosecutions. The panel will also discuss the mechanisms that will be at work during the 25th Regular Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council this March.
