Democracy, Human Rights and Governance

USAID assistance strengthens good governance, builds a robust civil society and promotes reconciliation—all of which are prerequisites for long-term stability and prosperity.

We support key democratic institutions, including Parliament, the Election Commission, the judiciary and the media. USAID also helps build citizen engagement in social and political reforms and helps address drivers of conflict by assisting in community-level reconciliation, peace building and promoting an inclusive Sri Lankan identity.
