Recently, IPS Research Fellow Dr. Nisha Arunatilake sat down with the Daily Mirror to discuss recent trends and challenges in the Sri Lankan labour market.

“The Sri Lankan government should introduce legislation to allocate a minimum number of board seats in corporates to females, a researcher at a government affiliated think tank opined recently. Currently only a very low number of females sit on of board seats in corporates, and the situation could be given the same treatment as the government has given to local government bodies,” she noted.
