While the internet and social media have made it easier to access information on the trajectories of state reform in Sri Lanka at the click of a button, a large and significant body of work that exists offline may often be overlooked or ignored. This volume contributes to addressing this deficiency by compiling, commenting on and contextualizing the significant interventions made by scholars into the debates on state reform in Sri Lanka over the years. As such, this annotated bibliography is an extremely important resource for researchers, students and scholars who wish to critically engage with the trajectory of state reform debates in Sri Lanka today.
