PCS 391 - Sri Lanka Immersion Seminar: Youth-Led Reconciliation

Credits: 4
Explores practical frameworks for facilitating processes of reconciliation and conflict transformation in the Sri Lankan context. Classroom experiences introduce students to Sri Lankan history, with particular focus on the rise of ethnic tensions and war; processes of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration in the post-war era; and subsequent challenges of reconciliation and the establishment of human rights. Further study of transitional justice mechanisms and the engagement of youth in grassroots reconciliation movements prepares students for field work in helping to facilitate the five-day Sri Lanka Unites Future Leaders Conference, which brings together student leaders from diverse ethnic communities across Sri Lanka for leadership and reconciliation training. Fees assessed as required
