This article examines the need to reach a compromise between prosecuting alleged offenders and fostering reconciliation to Sri Lanka in the aftermath of the armed conflict by balancing the methods of retrospective justice and restorative justice. It evaluates the observations and comments made by the international community in this regard and the responses of the Government of Sri Lanka in the light of relevant provisions of international humanitarian law and human rights law instruments and customary international law principles.
