The Burke Chair has prepared two new reports on terrorism in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia: 2007-2010. These reports draw on unclassified US reporting by the National Counterterrorism Center and the US Department of State.

Eight months after the dramatic end of three decades of separatist war, Mahinda Rajapaksa's decisive reelection as president of Sri Lanka gives him an opportunity to move the country forward on multiple fronts: political reform, economic renewal, and reengagement with international players including the United States. His big challenge will be to recognize that peacemaking still lies ahead of him.

The election of Mahinda Rajapakse as Sri Lanka's president puts the country's already fragile peace efforts at a watershed. By engineering a boycott of the election, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) virtually guaranteed Rajapakse's election, but also served notice that their position has hardened. In post-election statements, Rajapakse gave a conciliatory tone to some tough positions, while LTTE chief Prabhakaran repeatedly said that he had given up on Sri Lanka's Sinhalese politicians.

ABOUT THE REPORT
Sri Lanka has experienced over twenty years of internal armed conflict. With a ceasefire agreement in place between the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), there is a renewed possibility for peace. However, much work needs to be done before a final peace settlement is negotiated.

The current ceasefire and the Norwegian-brokered peace talks set to start in the coming weeks between the Sri Lankan government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) represent the best hope for peace in Sri Lanka in seven years. The initiative is nonetheless fragile, vulnerable as it is to the usual political upsets in the Sri Lankan mainstream and deep suspicion between the negotiating partners.
