New Theatre, East Building
Hon Tyronne Fernando, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sri Lanka, will be speaking on The Peace Process - an overview on Wednesday 5 February at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
For nearly two decades, Sri Lanka has been scarred by a bitter civil war, which erupted in the 1980s between Tamils pressing for self-rule and the government. The violence has damaged the economy and harmed tourism in what is one of South Asia's more advanced and potentially prosperous societies. A ceasefire was reached, however, in early 2002 with political agreement between the government and rebels in late 2002 raising hopes for a lasting peace.
Professor Margot Light, LSE, will chair this event which is free and open to all, but a ticket is required. To request a ticket, call 020 7955 6100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
