A recent article by Barana Waidyatilake, LKI Research Fellow, on ‘Sri Lanka and Australia’s Strategic Defence Interests,’ has been featured in The Diplomat magazine.


Mr. Waidyatilake argues that Sri Lanka and Australia have great scope for increasing their strategic cooperation, especially in the context of Australia’s new defence policy articulated in the Defence White Paper 2016. Such cooperation could address issues around illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, climate change-related crises in neighbouring countries, and the development of a rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific.
