National Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka - Report to the Regional National Human Rights Institutions Project on Inclusion, the Right to Health and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. UNDP, IDLO and APF. (2013)

In post-conflict Sri Lanka, the HRCSL faces an increasing number of complaints regarding school admissions, land problems and government inactivity.
