the social architects (tsa)

A diverse group of writers, activists, scholars and working professionals created “The Social Architects (TSA)” in early 2012. Once a research and advocacy group now serves as a forum to debate conflicting historical views to allow for shared history and for lessons from the present feelings of blame, mistrust and injustice.

In addition, TSA with branches across the country has become a space for communities in Ampara, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Hatton, Kilinochchi and Jaffna develop skills to advocate for enhancing action for “State Accountability” through the use of Right to Information Act”.
