Dr Dinesha Samararatne (Sri Lanka)

The final session captured insights into the interaction between culture and constitution building, generally and with particular reference to Sri Lanka, as the host of the Forum.

  • Insights from the perspective of Sri Lanka were provided by Dr Dinesha Samararatne and Ms Sakuntala Kadirgamar-Rajasingham;
  • Insights for constitution building globally were summarised by Prof Cheryl Saunders and Ms Leena Rikila Tamang.

A postscript draws attention to the significance of the issues canvassed in the Forum for the constitutional developments that unfolded in Sri Lanka shortly after the forum was over.
