Sri Lanka suffered from over 25 years of armed conflict that ended in 2009 when the Sri Lankan government militarily defeated the rebel movement the LTTE (often known as the Tamil Tigers). However, although the Government now controls the whole of the country, many of the root causes of the conflict are yet to be addressed. Whilst there is a real need for national solutions, it is imperative that this runs parallel to broadening and supporting local civil society across the entire country.
