The 20 year conflict has adversely affected the security and rights of minorities and other vulnerable groups, as well as, democratic institutions and processes in the country. Supporting the transition to a stable post conflict environment must be accompanied by re-establishing the rule of law and non-violent means for protecting rights and resolving disputes. The latter is of concern to all communities and acts as a bridging activity between groups at the local and national level. Strengthening political institutions should be developed in parallel with programs that encourage citizen participation, thereby strengthening democratic processes. Stronger and more effective national and provincial legislatures will strengthen the role of parliament, support the capacity of provincial government to be more responsive to citizens? needs and provide greater scrutiny of government institutions. Supporting capacity building within political parties in order to bolster their commitment to non-violent, pluralistic and participatory politics in Sri Lanka ? including a greater role for women -- will be a key objective within this program. Lastly, working with local constituencies provides a more viable opportunity to bring together diverse ethnic, religious or otherwise divided interests around common development issues through a participatory process. This program will support increased responsiveness of political institutions, promoting the rule of law to make government more effective and accountable.
