British Council hosts international education event in Colombo

The British Council will hold a global education forum in Colombo, with attendees from several countries coming together to discuss international higher education issues.

“Global education dialogues are organised around the world to bring together key policy-makers and influences so that they can reflect on and debate the challenges and opportunities facing international higher education,” the British Council said in a statement.

Over 100 participants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the UAE and the UK are expected to attend.

Sri Lanka as a venue for international events is already being heavily criticised, over its hosting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in November, with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper threatening to boycott the event.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
