To be Published: June 2019
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Country of Publication: Switzerland

Introduces readers to the underlying reasons why a country from the Global South, Sri Lanka, engages with the international human rights machinery and furnishes explanations for post-colonial states’ behaviour.

Provides an explanation for the limited impact of this international human rights engagement on the Sri Lankan human rights infrastructure, despite intensive engagement and interaction.

Highlights what needs to be changed within the United Nations and Sri Lanka so as to open the door for a more fruitful human rights discourse.
