ethno-religious nationalism and srhr in sri lanka

The purpose of the study was to contribute to the knowledge base on factors that influence SRHR policy and practice and develop a strong evidence-base on emerging challenges that impede women from achieving their sexual and reproductive rights and accessing related services. The evidence-base generated will be subsequently used to advocate for the SRHR agenda to advance sustainable development while addressing the challenges brought on through the use of religion in marginalising women from national to international spaces.

This study looks at a defined time period—between May 2009 (when the government in power declared victory in the civil war between the rebel forces and the Sri Lankan forces) and December 2014 when this research was undertaken (defined as the present in relation to the study timeline).
