Sustaining a state in conflict: Politics of foreign aid in Sri Lanka

This study focuses on the politics of foreign aid to Sri Lanka from developed

capitalist countries of the West, Japan and multilateral agencies during the period

1977 to the end of the armed conflict between Sri Lankan security forces and the

Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. This period is characterised by economic policies

that emphasised openness to global capitalism, markets and the private sector,

and an armed conflict resulting from the demand by the Tamil minority for a

separate state.
