Colombo Development Dialogues 3 - Policy Paper

Jun 20, 2019

The third edition of the Colombo Development Dialogues focused on ‘Refugees, Asylum-seekers and the 2030 Agenda’. The panel brought together a range of individuals from the government, private sector, development agencies and academia to provide expert interventions on refugees’ and asylum-seekers’ access to employment and education in Sri Lanka. The panel was complemented by five pre-identified Discussants, who provided additional perspectives and evaluations of the panellists’ comments to facilitate further questions and discussions. As such, perspectives on the challenges facing refugee and asylum-seeker communities, the need for a permanent legal framework and interim legal measures, and potential solutions around facilitating greater access to education and employment given existing structures were discussed and debated during the course of the event.
