Conflict Prevention Through Infrastructure Reconstruction

Press/Media: Research


Sri Lanka’s ethnic war came to an end in mid 2009 when the LTTE was decisively defeated by the Sri Lankan security forces. The conflict destroyed much of the infrastructure in the region, as well as houses and many business enterprises.  With funding from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office through the British High Commission in Colombo, that Dr Richard Haigh, Centre for Disaster Resilience (CDR), launched the project: Conflict Prevention through Infrastructure Reconstruction.

In December 2011, a Salford team of academics – Dr Richard Haigh, Professor Dilanthi Amaratunga and Vice-Chancellor Professor Martin Hall – visited Sri Lanka to meet with the local partners, contribute to field work and visit communities in the North and East.
