Sri Lanka

My most recent report for the International Bar Association Human Rights Institute, concerning the state of the rule of law in Sri Lanka, hasn’t worked out. The government refused me and my fellow delegates visas to enter the country, and our mission had to be conducted remotely. The report was launched at the House of Lords in April 2013, and a film of the proceedings is viewable here. More recently, I wrote the following:

‘At the CHOGM’ – about Sri Lanka’s hosting of the Commonwealth’s biannual get-together in November 2013. (London Review of Books, 21 November 2013).

Channel 4 and Sri Lanka’ (LRB blog, 19 November 2013).

Sri Lanka Should Be Condemned – Not Acclaimed’ (Independent, 3 November 2013).
