Who are we?

Weeramantry Centre for Peace, Justice and International Law (Weera Centre) is an initiative to take forward the illuminating legacy of late Judge Christopher Gregory Weeramantry who had an exceptional life not only as a lawyer or judge of the International Court of Justice but also as a teacher and torchbearer of humanity. 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 that includes (but is not limited to) space, environmental or nuclear conduct of states. We have also mandated ourselves to undertake rigorous advocacy for human rights within and without the court of law.

Our immediate plans include conducting institutional level activities in the aforementioned areas. We also aim to bring law fraternity closer to international law because, in our assessment, the discipline hasn’t got it’s academic due especially in the Global South that has ironically been at the heart (and often, at the receiving end) of international activities.
