Urban Community Profiles: Safe Relocation and Resettlement in Post-War Sri Lanka

Published on 25 April 2018

In this chapter, we offer some theories about how to create safer cities in post- war countries. We do this by presenting our research on the losses and gains of two relocated urban IDP communities in post- war Sri Lanka: Colombo, the national capital, and Jaffna, the capital of the country’s northern province.

Our community profiling approach looks at how these two communities responded with resilience to the violence and displacement that residents experienced in a post-conflict situation.
