Thanks David,

I have been a Researcher and a Peace Promoter on Freelance basis pertaining to Conflict resolution & Peace. I have already done a research on “language as a Tool Of Reconciliation , Ethnic harmony and Peace’ which has  published. I presented papers on same research at International Conferences held in U.K., Denmark, California, and China. Now my country Sri Lanka is at the post-conflict recovery stage and the Government  is taking steps to promote reconciliation, ethnic harmony and sustainable peace in the country after defeating terrorism militarily in 2009. I would like acquire international experience pertaining to this subject. an opportunity is welcomed.
