    Abstract

    Era pasca-LTTE dan pasca-peperangan di Sri Lanka menimbulkan satu situasi di mana pemerintah tidak mempunyai sebarang pembangkang yang boleh menentang atau mempengaruhi aktiviti-aktiviti rekonstruksi pembinaan perdamaian selepas peperangan. Kajian ini mengkaji proses pembinaan perdamaian selepas perang yang berlaku dalam era rejim Presiden Rajapaksa untuk meneroka impaknya ke atas perdamaian lestari dalam negara ini. Kajian ini cuba menjawab tiga persoalan: Apakah inisiatif-inisiatif pembinaan semula dan pembinaan perdamaian kerajaan pasca-perang? Apakah manfaat-inisiatif ini dan siapakah penerima faedahnya?Adakah inisiatif-inisiatif tersebut mampu menangani punca konflik dan mencapai kejayaan dalam membina perdamaian yang berpanjangan? Untuk menyempurnakan tugasan ini, kajian menggunakan kaedah kualitatif dengan menggunakan sumber-sumber primer data seperti temuramah dengan mereka yang terlibat, pembuat dasar, pelaksana dan aktor-aktor bebas selain melinat jnga sumber sekunder seperti laporan-laporan kerajaan dan bukan-kerajaan dan dokumen-dokumen untuk tujuan analisis kandungan dan sorotan kronologi. The post-LTTE and post-war situation left the Sri Lankan government with no credible opposition to challenge or influence the post-war reconstruction and peacebuilding activities. This study examines the process of post-war peacebuilding that took place during the period of President Rajapaksa‟s regime to explore its impact on sustainable peace in the country. The research tries to answer three questions: What were the government‟s post-war reconstruction and peacebuilding initiatives? What exactly were the benefits and who were the beneficiaries? Were these initiatives able to address the root causes of the conflict and achieve success in building a long lasting peace? To accomplish this task, the study uses the qualitative method of using primary sources of data such as interviews with the affected people, policy makers, implementers and independent actors along with secondary sources such as governmental as well as non-governmental reports and documents for content analysis and chronological reviews.
