Simply stated, Reconciliation is a process of restoring parties to a conflict through the previous situation. It goes beyond forgetting, forgiving, or repentance to new and stronger relationships within affected parties – perhaps with new information and insights that invariably developed in Reconciliation. There is a need for overall Reconciliation could be one of the most valuable and important “LESSONS LEARNT” for an acceptable lasting and fulfilling way forward.

Without question, 2009 will be a watershed year for the history of Sri Lanka. A year later, the government is concerned with a successful annual celebration parade, while the international community is focused on a war crimes investigation. Perhaps both interested parties are missing the larger point of reconciliation and reconstruction. The absence of war does not ensure peace. Such an environment is achieved through dialogue and cooperation between conflicting parties. Recently, the National Peace Council (NPC) invited me to join a conference that had been arranged to inform community members of Puttalam and surrounding areas of the situation of IDPs as it is being played out inside the camps.
