Since 2015, Sri Lanka has been in the midst of a democratic transition that has created opportunities for political reform and reconciliation following decades of civil war. As Sri Lanka has become more stable, other countries have begun to see the island nation of strategic relevance as it sits at the center of the Indian Ocean— the halfway point between China and the Middle East.
In this seventeenth episode, our hosts learn how Sri Lanka’s unique history shapes their foreign policy through conversations with Constantino Xavier of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the United States Devinda Subasinghe and IRI’s Resident Program Director in Sri Lanka Steve Cima.
