2012. Author: Ulrike Hopp-Nishanka

This dissertation seeks to understand the contribution of Sri Lanka’s peace secretariats to the peace negotiations and their impact in the transformation of the conflict. It also examines how the contributions and possible limitations of these infrastructures for peace can be explained. The study focuses on three peace secretariats: the government’s Secretariat for the Coordination of the Peace Process (SCOPP), the Peace Secretariat of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE PS) and the Peace Secretariat for the Muslims (PSM).
