This book presents a historical and analytical overview of social development in Sri Lanka within a social policy conceptual framework. The author identifies three distinct phases of development of social policy in the country—that of the early, late and post colonial state. Further, he shows how Sri Lankan social development has since been reframed by a combination of neo-liberalism and a protracted civil war. This shift from the country’s unique social welfare structure to one marked by warfare is examined in the context of the impact of a new `welfare regime` on its society. Printed Pages: 248.
