London Book Launch: The Film

Here the link to the film of my new book’s late-October 2015 London launch, held at the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS). Also in attendance were Erik Solheim, the former lead Norwegian negotiator in Sri Lanka, Vidar Helgesen, Deputy Foreign Minister during a crucial period in the Norwegian engagement in Sri Lanka, and Dr. Sutha Nadarajah, a senior lecturer at SOAS with strong past connections to the former chief LTTE political advisor, Anton Balasingham, who died in 2006. 1 1/2 hours may be pushing it a bit so suggest you can pick and choose your favoured bits!
