The three decade-long ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka which ended in May 2009 has thrown up both challenges and opportunities for Colombo and New Delhi.

Post-War Sri Lankan Politics is changing dramatically with an apparent movement towards a more inclusive political environment. However, in the absence of a mechanism to address the political and social grievances, a resurgence of Tamil nationalism is likely. This will pose a challenge for both Colombo and New Delhi. Sri Lanka, in this regard, must also sustain high growth rate in order to meet its rising needs and ambitions. Which include growing aspirations of its people; reconstructing war-torn areas; and becoming South Asia’s transit hub.

Meanwhile, Asia Pacific’s geopolitical dynamics is rapidly changing. Principally, China is rising, and rivalry among major IOR power is increasing. In This backdrop, Sri Lanka’s Strategic location at the crossroads of major maritime routes in the region makes the country extremely significant both for India and other external powers operating in the area. This presents an opportune moment for Colombo, which is undergoing the process of national reconstruction as well as is looking to redefine and reform its bilateral ties with its neighbors.

The contemporary context becomes all the more relevant in the study of future patterns, as it could set off a domino effect with consequences fore future generations to build peace.

New Delhi’s ability to craft an innovative foreign policy vis-à-vis Sri Lanka by removing the dichotomy in its relations with Colombo and rationally analyzing the involvement of external actors will determine the depth and direction of its future bilateral ties with Sri Lanka.
