BCIS, in its function of being one of Sri Lanka’s premier educators, treats the accumulation and expansion of knowledge with the same importance, as that of its dissemination.
This research project is an initiative of Her Excellency President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga, Chairperson of the BCIS. The BCIS has invited Prof. Uyangoda, Senior Professor of Political Science and a member of the BCIS’ Academic Board to lead this project.
The core objective of this initiative is to construct a corpus of critical and reflective knowledge on Sri Lanka’s and South Asian experience of democracy since independence. The project proposal covers six thematic areas and 28 chapters. The BCIS expects to publish the chapters in two volumes after a review process of the chapters.
