Sri Lanka

This tropical South Asian island situated off the southern tip of India mainly has flat and rolling land, with mountains in the south.The country achieved independence in 1948, but endured a 25 year civil war between the Sri Lankan army and the Tamil separatists, which ended in 2009 after significant human rights violations by both sides. The legacy of the war persists, including discrimination towards minorities and the recruitment of children as soldiers, as well as enduring problems of domestic violence, corporal punishment and child sex tourism.
