About the Sri Lanka Human Rights Project
Primary Goal
This project advocates human rights norms as Sri Lanka’s post-conflict situation rapidly deteriorates. In doing so, the project seeks to raise awareness about the country’s censored emergency and help work towards a peaceful and just solution for the multi-ethnic people of Sri Lanka

Objectives
* Establish relevant links with grassroots organisations, concerned NGOs, academics and parliamentarians in Australia. The resulting networks will serve as a conduit for the dissemination of public information and as a voice for Sri Lanka’s marginalised population.
* Raise public awareness of Sri Lanka’s post-conflict situation with an emphasis on its human rights emergency and
* In fostering awareness amongst the constituents of the Australian public, the project seeks to create a medium for dialogue and understanding between Sri Lanka’s ethnic groups

Project description

In light of the continued abuses committed in the aftermath of Sri Lanka’s civil war, the project aims to raise awareness about the country’s human rights disaster, which remains unrecognised by the greater international community. In highlighting the appalling conditions faced by Tamil people in government internment camps, the project raises calls for the Sri Lankan government to find a workable solution for the Tamil population. By encouraging the international community to develop a just environment, much needed peaceful dialogue can be further promoted amongst the multi-ethnic people of Sri Lanka. More
