A Guest Lecture by: Her Excellency Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga – Former President of Sri Lanka (1994-2005)

For over two decades, ethnopolitical conflict tore at the seams of Sri Lanka. Civil war between the two main ethnic groups – the Sinhalese and the Tamils- threatened the stability of this small island country. Amidst waves of violence, President Kumaratunga sought a political solution through negotiation and ceasefire agreements. Join us to hear firsthand how President Kumaratunga navigated the emotional and identity-based complexities of the conflict, as well as the interplay of religion, culture, and ethnicity.
