Though the civil war in sri Lanka has been going on for thirty years it does not get much coverage in the world media: the Northeast of Sri Lanka has been out of bounds for journalists the last two years when military assaults have also been intense rssulting in more than 6,000 killings and inmpunity for state armed forces for crimes committed against the ethnic minorities has been so high that there have been more than 1,800 abduction-murders without any investigations in the last three years. Four parliamentarians, about twenty journalists and about forty humanitarian aid workers have been killed inside heavily militarised zones.
The government has been staunchly resisting the calls by UN, EU, AI, HRW< ICG, ICJ and others for urgent UN human rights field monioring inside Sri Lanka.
hundreds of thousands of IDPs have been languishing in camps, some up to 10-20 years. The EU delegation that went to Sri Lanka in July 2008 was prevented from going to the Northeast.
Parts of Northeast Sri Lanka have been completely cut off from the rest of the country and people are in ''open prisons'' there as these parts are heavily militarised and because arbitrary arrests/toture and abduction-murders are going on near the mushroom of army camps and checkpoints.
civil societies in Colombo have been going on fct-finding missions to Northeast Sri Lanka and reporting the frightening situation.

There has been embargo on food and medicine

I just joined this site. I am in law school right now, studying Constitutional Law and European Legal Studies. I am looking for information or ideas on how to turn my legal education into real work in the fields of mediation & negotiation and ADR. This could be in the form of internships, future professional employment, or anything else you think may help.

Any advice you can give me would truly be appreciated. Thank you for your time. - Chris
