South Asian Journalists Association presents the third in a series of webcasts about Sri Lanka. The war in Sri Lanka has drawn to a close in terms of military operations—but serious humanitarian and political questions remain. Will there be a return to armed conflict, or is it really over? How will the issues of hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people be addressed? How will the human rights situation be addressed? As the international community and Sri Lankan government officials talk about a political solution, what process is likely to take hold? How far will that solution go? What will be the relationship between rehabilitation, reconstruction, development and the political process? What are the possibilities of a transitional process to provide democratic space? How can demilitarization and democracy move forward in Sri Lanka? What role will the powerful Tamil diaspora play? Featuring: Ahilan Kadirgamar, spokesperson for the Sri Lanka Democracy Forum; Alan Keenan, senior analyst of the International Crisis Group; Jayampathy Wickramaratne, constitutional lawyer. Moderator: V.V. Ganeshananthan, former SAJA vice president and author of "Love Marriage," a novel set in Sri Lanka and the diaspora.
