Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga founded South Asian Policy and Research Institute in February, 2010 due to her desire to continue contributing to the progress of South Asia.
The main objective of SAPRI is to study issues that pose major challenges to South Asian countries and to formulate practical recommendations for their resolution. SAPRI is a non-political, not-for-profit organization. While it is not committed politically to one ideology or another, it is deeply committed to the economic prosperity, political stability, security and peace of South Asia.
Its research focuses on the study of issues relating to good governance, conflict resolution, peace building, economic development, poverty alleviation, and the environment.
Through its work, SAPRI hopes to contribute to the task of bringing South Asian thinkers and policy makers together, to engage in dialogue about common concerns and to promote regional cooperation in order to attain separate national dreams, while progressing as a great region.
