Who we are?
Weeramantry Centre for Peace, Justice and International Law (Weera Centre) is an initiative by a group of working professionals willing to take forward the bright and illuminating legacy of the teacher, lawyer and judge – late Christopher Gregory Weeramantry. We are a group of ever-enthusiastic volunteers driven by an unending love for international law and absolute deference for the life and work of Christopher Weeramantry.
Our vision is to promote knowledge with value and order with justice. Our mission is to conduct stimulating academic events and contribute to the peace-oriented policy-making process. We have also mandated ourselves to undertake rigorous advocacy for human rights within and without the court of law.
Our immediate plans include conducting quality, purpose based academic activities. We also aim to bring the law fraternity closer to international law because, in our assessment, the discipline hasn’t got its due (even) in the Global South, which has ironically been at the heart (and often, at the receiving end) of international activities.
