Sri Lanka is at a crossroads in the quest for accountability for torture and other serious human rights abuses committed during the country’s civil war (2002-9) and its aftermath. This briefing addresses the question of “what success looks like” for the internationalised justice process promised by the Sri Lankan government, from the perspective of Sri Lankan torture survivors in treatment at Freedom from Torture.

We offer it as a contribution to the consultation process announced by the government and hope it will be used to strengthen the justice process and ensure its credibility, especially among survivors.
