"Constitutional Reform in Sri Lanka:

Meeting Majoritarian Challenges while Providing for Meaningful Devolution"


Nearly a decade after the defeat of armed separatism, Sri Lanka is yet to arrive at a constitutional settlement of its ethnic crisis. While Tamil moderates seem prepared to accept power-sharing within a single country, there is strong pressure from Sinhala nationalists not to strengthen the system of Provincial Councils, alleging that more devolution would necessarily pave the way to secession. Any change in the ‘unitary’ nature of the State is strongly opposed by nationalists. For many Sri Lankans ‘unitary’ means ‘oneness’ or ‘one country’.

The Sinhala word for ‘unitary’ is ‘ekeeya’ and ‘eka’ is ‘one’. Thus, changing the unitary nature of the state is seen by some as ‘dividing’ the country. Moderate Tamils and proponents of devolution in the South, on the other hand, argue that describing the Sri Lankan State as ‘unitary’ is undesirable for the reason that there exists a certain ‘unitary mindset’ in Sri Lanka according to which any issue that arises between the Centre and a Province is decided in favour of the Centre. They argue that while ‘unitary’ means, in the classic sense, that powers devolved may be withdrawn by the Centre by constitutional change, there have been many instances of the legislature, executive and even the judiciary undermining devolution at every possible turn. In the current constitutional reform process, strong demands for meaningful devolution have been made also by the Sinhala-dominated provinces, indicating that devolution is seen also as an instrument for balanced regional growth, a welcome development. The challenge is to provide for effective and meaningful devolution to address the national question and demands for balanced regional development, while assuaging fears of possible secession.

This special seminar is co-hosted by the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies (CCCS) and Constitution Transformation Network (ConTransNet).

Operation Hope would like to invite you and your friends to come along to our 'Night of Hope' dinner dance. There will be a live band and DJ.

Cost: $75 per head (includes all food and drinks) This event is to raise funds for Kilinochchi, a rural community in Northern Sri Lanka, who are very marginalised with limited resources, which leave the children particularly vulnerable. This project aims at achieving household food security and income by providing agricultural training and materials, as well as organic gardening support. We will also be conducting public awareness around child protection issues. Our hope is that families will be able to grow their own food, give the children a healthy diet and also earn a small income. We would love your support - so please gather a few friends, make up a table of 10 and come have a good time, knowing that at the same time you are making a difference in the lives of this vulnerable community.
