SRI LANKA'S FOREIGN POLICY: CHOICES IN A CHANGING WORLD
The Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute of International Relations and Strategic Studies (LKI) is organising a landmark event on Sri Lanka's foreign policy, which will proceed in two parts. It will begin with a half-day seminar on the morning of 28 June 2017, supported by Hemas Holdings PLC, on Emerging Issues in the Indian Ocean, and will be followed by the Sri Lanka Foreign Policy Forum on 28-29 June 2017.
LKI is Sri Lanka’s leading foreign policy think tank, with a mission of providing insights and recommendations that advance justice, peace, prosperity, and sustainability. The Institute reflects the vision of the late Hon. Lakshman Kadirgamar by promoting the country’s profile in foreign policy research and engagement. LKI is chaired by the Hon. Minister of Foreign Affairs and governed by a Board of Management comprising eminent individuals in fields related to international relations.
What will you learn?
The seminar on Emerging Issues in the Indian Ocean will offer insights on the regional context of Sri Lanka’s foreign policy, by examining key developments in security, trade, and dispute resolution in the region.
The Foreign Policy Forum will present policy ideas and recommendations for how Sri Lanka's political and economic actors should navigate the evolving world order, including issues of unstable alliances, nationalism and protectionism, and heightened transnational threats.
