[Excerpt] In this second report of the series, renowned worker rights researcher Lance Compa assesses the damage that nearly two decades of civil war have wrought on Sri Lanka’s fragile democracy, economy, and social justice framework. Compa puts Sri Lanka’s labor law and practice to the test against international worker rights standards enshrined in International Labor Organization conventions and the ILO’s 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
