Overview

Through programming in Sri Lanka around the 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015 elections, NDI developed long-standing relationships with and supported civil society groups to conduct election monitoring, advocacy and civic education campaigns. In October 2015, Sri Lanka became the first and only South Asian member of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) - a multilateral platform for participating countries to develop commitments to make their governments more open and accountable. The Institute's current work in Sri Lanka involves assisting the parliament in developing commitments for greater legislative openness as part of the country's national action plan for open government.
