Rajakapuru, a Sri Lankan stage drama directed by Janaka Premalal, full of sarcasm which has been staged for over 15 years entertaining Sri Lankan audiences. This is the first time it's to be staged in Melbourne. 13 artists will arrive in Australia for the performance.

"Mannar Emerging - Bridging Lanka Symposium 2018"

This Bridging Lanka event seeks to throw the spotlight on our ‘development’ efforts to nurture peace, prosperity and reconciliation in Sri Lanka. In this critical work, our diaspora (Tamil, Muslim, Burgher and Sinhalese) and Aussie supporters overcome many hurdles to undertake sincere, strategic and enduring work in Mannar and beyond.
There has been so much activity in the past year. We will showcase our recent projects, challenges and successes as well as invite you to shape our future direction. We will also pose some difficult questions about ‘development’ work more generally.
We look forward to welcoming you and sharing wonderful stories from volunteers, Board Members and guests.

Thank you for your support of Bridging Lanka. Our supporters make all the difference to our work.

Tribute Talk


TOWARDS ONE WORLD: a tribute

by Prof Tony Anghie

Towards One World’: the Vision of C.G.Weeramantry

In this special event to honour the life of Emeritus Professor Christie Weeramantry AM, Professor Tony Anghie will delve into the themes of Christie’s jurisprudence and his larger vision of the world as they developed from his time as a lawyer and Judge in Sri Lanka, through his years at Monash University to his work on the International Court of Justice.

Tony will focus particularly on two issues that Christie wrote about extensively - environmental protection and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. These writings illustrate some of the enduring themes of Christie’s work: his view of a universal international law that incorporated non-Western traditions; and his belief that the law must address the needs of the people it was designed to serve.

Professor Tony Anghie
Tony Anghie is Professor of Law at the University of Utah  and the National University of Singapore. He was a student and then a research assistant to Christie Weeramantry, and a friend for many years. He received his B.A and LL.B degrees from Monash University and his S.J.D from Harvard Law School where he was appointed a Senior Fellow. His scholarship focuses on public international law, human rights, international economic law, the history and theory of international law, and Third World Approaches to International Law.
