AbstractA comparative research on socio-religious reform movements in Sri Lanka, exploring 4 separate yet related research foci in the post-war context involving each of the major world religions (Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam) and questions of human equality and social cohesion in a post-conflict national reconstruction setting. The significance of the project is an innovative simultaneous study of Sri Lankan religion combined with an examination of the relationship between religion and social difference, inclusion and exclusion. Involving 4 PhDs from Sri Lanka and Australia working with experienced anthropologists from each country, the project will produce multiple publications in a significant ongoing international collaboration.
