This submission to the Independent Expert on Foreign Debt and Human Rights comes at an important juncture in the trajectory of Sri Lanka’s socio-political and economic development. In 2015 the country took a definitive turn after the presidential election, which had led to the election of a new president and to the election of a new parliament later that year through general elections. In the absence of a single party gaining an overall parliamentary majority, a government was formed through a fragile coalition between the two major political parties.
